We are in the EU, have 4 children, 9-7-6 and a 3 month old; we have been thinking of returning to the US, just for background we have been reform but recently sort of checking out Lubavitcher and other orthodox communities, we are more sephardi minhag but have not found such communities where we live atm., israel is a must but for now maybe aliyah

Can anyone share experiences with partts of the country that have cheery communities all around year to raise children?

we appreciated it

Mia and Gabriel

What language are you translating from? Knowing this will aid in which part of the country to go too as language may be a barrier.

Moving to a new country is a drastic undertaking. Where do you live now?

UK is a European center for Jews. I don't get your question, are you looking to join a Jewish community and send your children to Jewish schools or just to move to the US?

We want to move to the US and are asking where are some of the better areas for families to raise jewish children,

Somewhere warm, safe and reasonable for working.

I have asked friends in denver and auston, i looked up jewish communities there too and they seem very interesting.
Just wondering if others think its better to stay in the east coast or if its better to move to the mid west, sadly while cali sounds promising i ratehr avoid it.

I lived in San Diego, LA, Seatle, SF, NYC, Brooklyn, Austroa queens, NJ, PA, DC, VA, Orlando, Tampa and long island in the past but its been 10 years since i been back and especially with family.

Boca Raton, Florida. I like to lovingly refer to it as Little Israel (Or the sixth borough of New York City).

That makes you the most reliable source to answer your own question.
