I would recommend CH East or Eastern for the Jewish community, Haddonfield for being small, and all three for being good schools.

I don't think there is a JCC on 70 anymore. The only thing that shows up on a google search or the map is the Katz JCC on Springdale.

OK. I know that the old one stayed open, but so much has closed in the last 3 years.

Eastern Cherry Hill/Voorhees have a lot of "nouveau riche" pockets, which turns some people off. Neither area is uniformly wealthy though. There are plenty of middle-class pockets, and Cherry Hill gets you a lot of bang for your buck in the first place, even factoring in state & county taxes. Voorhees is a bit less Jewish than Eastern CH (probably in the neighborhood of 10-15%) but you'll hardly feel like an outsider. These days, you won't find too many Jews in Western CH. Haddonfield is probably the nicest town in South Jersey, but it's also quite expensive as a result. Moorestown is more affordable, but still on the pricier side. Their public school systems range from above average (Eastern) to excellent (Haddonfield).

I'd vote for CH East for a significant Jewish identity (although not necessarily religious). As for snob factors, I'm enough of a snob to know that people who wear clothes with designer names plastered all over them are walking advertisements for the tastelessness of the nouveau riche!
CH West does has more of the working-class side of CH, East really is the "new" side of things, although I do gather that some financial changes were made so all the money didn't pour into East and skip West. Yes, the school is big, but I think it's very good (even if it's been a long time since I grew up in Woodcrest and all) I do try to follow things down there. Best wishes.
