Better to ask where the Jewish communities are close by to where you will work.

I know Agoura Hills at Reyes Adobe and 101 has a lot of Jews - there's an orthodox community in that neighborhood.
There are three synagogues/temples on Valley Circle between the 101 and West Hills (this is in the extreme west end of the San Fernando Valley).

North Hollywood.

Fairfax historically but we're talking 50 years ago.

Encino has a high Jewish/Israeli community. La Brea has a high Orthodox Jewish population.

I must say it does sadden me how people just want to be around their own and not mix.
It's so segregated it makes me feel sick.

I think a person desiring to live near a familiar community is a lot more common than than a person feeling sick because a person desires to live near a familiar community.

Who says the OP doesn't want to mix? Jews aren't ubiquitous like Christians - it takes some planning to be near houses of worship or stores meeting dietary needs when you are less than 1% of the population.

I don't think it's fair to jump to the conclusion that the OP wants to self-segregate himself, but it's also worth noting that the Jewish population in Los Angeles is much greater than one percent.

One question would be do you just want to live somewhere where you'll have other Jewish people as your neighbors (which could be anywhere in LA) or do you want to live in the same neighborhood as a synagogue, and, if so, what kind?

My maternal grandfather's family are all Orthodox Jews. They're pretty much all over. Irvine, Garden Grove, Lakewood, Bellflower, etc. There is a synagogue in Lakewood for what it's worth. The area where my grandfather grew up in the heart of LA was mainly Jewish 50 years ago, now it's mainly Mexican(with Catholicism replacing the religion).

jews are much more than 1% of population in the city of LA. also, any neighborhood with a majority white population is going to be heavily jewish, especially if it's a wealthier area (ie. the westside, southern SFV, Thousand Oaks).
