No worries as long as they are Jewish . You may discover a new kosher deli

No, I'm old first. Everything else has to fit in around that, at least until after I've had my nap.....

Well, I live in Boca. Right in the middle.

Boca definitely has conservatives.

It's more diverse than you think.

It's not all 55 plus communities and condos.

This is from 2012 and very close to where I live actually -

And then, he probably would have won - but then there was this dinner (September 2012) - also in Boca

https://www.palmbeachpost.com/articl...NEWS/812025018

It's a shame you can't be at a dinner and have your comments taken out of context by a bartender who ended up getting 150K for his story....

Note: This was just to show there are conservatives in Boca and plenty of them. I don't mean to bring politics into it. Boca is a wonderful place to live and I happen to live in one of the most normal communities there. I used to call it a "Leave It to Beaver" neighborhood but I don't anymore because people say "what's that?"

While I am not Jewish, I share your need. I live in the DC area, which has a great absence of decent bread, Hard crust is unknown here. Other food is passable, but good Chinese and Italian do not exist. I was raised in Northern New Jersey, and spent a great deal of time in Manhattan. I miss the food variety and quality of the NYC area very much.

I found some sites that might be of interest to you.

Good luck!

Good luck!
Forget guns.
Forget hunting.
Forget Conservatives.

BREAD....you have it right. Years ago while looking for "our place" we toured most of the South...coastal NC and many other places. Never did we find a decent loaf of bread...even in their "finest" of Italian eateries.....

And, therefore, we never lived or moved there. That is like the harbinger of whether a culture is advanced or not.

We currently have too many houses....but in W. Mass. we have at least 6 bakeries within 10 minutes that have the real thing...I mean REAL thing. In addition, we have vast numbers of good restaurants of every type. Of course, it's a "liberal" area, but we do have the Yiddish Book Museum so there is that!

We also spend time in RI - which is....Italian! Lots of bakeries and good bread and Neapolitan pizza....and everything else good. Just returned home right now from some fine dining in a place where they speak Italian.

You can't have it all.....but I'll take good food over gun toting neighbors, given the choice. The food is eaten many times a day...the guns sit in a safe or a drawer or wherever and are almost never used.

The Gulf Coast (Sarasota) where we winter has a lot of it all. Plenty of guns, conservatives. christians..and even jews. Not too many orthodox tho. But we have some good food now.....there is an amazing bagel place and great farmers markets with every sort of healthy food. Lots of specific foreign foods because Germans, etc. relocate there. We have German Bakeries, Russian Delis, Hungarian pastries, Wisconsin cheese shops and the old favorites of Whole Foods and Trader Joes for some staples. We have Amish markets (big Amish community).

It might be a place the OP would consider- there probably is a conservative Jewish house of worship just that I haven't looked.

Here we do - at least two on the list

OK, so west coast Florida may make the cut!

OP, I can tell you where not to live, California. We lose more and more personal freedoms everyday. Most of my conservative friends have left the state.

Lake Mary,fl. Too Jays Deli and Seminole county is very conservative. Chabad synagogues in the area.

Chabad synagogues are NOT conservative synagogues. They are orthodox Hasidic synagogues; very different from conservative Judaism.
