Since it has been a while since there has been a similar posting, perhaps I might be able to get some feedback.

My family will be relocating to the Raleigh area in the next couple of months. We are Jewish and have 2 young children, and would like to live in a neighborhood that has other Jewish families with young children (pre-kindergarden age). We have heard that the Raleigh area is a melting pot of northerners and we will not find a predominantly Jewish neighborhood, and yes, we can go to a synagogue or the JCC, but it would be nice to have some neighbors that share our same affiliation.

Hopefully someone could recommend a specific neighborhood or two that might fit our needs.

Thank you.

I still agree with this assertion, but some of the older N. Raleigh neighborhoods have a good population of them. I'd say around Falls of Neuse Rd.

Maybe call a synagogue or two and get some opinions?

The website said there are no Jewish neighborhoods, but these subdivisions in Raleigh have large numbers of Jewish families:

Northridge, Stonebridge, Stonehenge, Greystone, and Bedford

Neighborhoods within walking distance of the two biggest synagogues, maybe?

North Ridge was known for a lot of Jewish residents (almost all IBM transplants, back then) when it first came up in the 1970s--the Orthodox Synagogue is located near there so people can walk to it. It's a solid neighborhood, slightly older homes but that also means wonderful mature yards. North Ridge Elementary School is walkable for many areas (I went there myself, decades ago) and I think it still gets very good ratings as a school.
