Hi, I live in Westfield and love it.

I am not Jewish, but many of my friends are. There is a decent presence here. Most of my friends that are Jewish send their children to Temple Emmanuel in Westfield for preschool, and some kindergarten-(even if this is not the temple that they belong to). This becomes a good way to meet people. There is also a JCC in Scotch Plains which has a preschool and, summer day camp.

I am not sure what the percent of population is, maybe 5%, maybe more. You should be able to find that info online...

Good luck!!

Oh and by the way, many who live here came from Hoboken or NYC when they were ready to have children...

Yes, there is quite a large Jewish population in Westfield. Why don't you go on the internet and put in Westfield, places of worship or Temples and Synagogues. I'm sure you will find the information you are looking for. It is a wonderful town. Good luck.
