You may want to take a look into Westborough. There is a growing Jewish population there and it is very much a family friendly community. It is a more expensive town, but cheaper than the communities you may be priced out of. There is a commuter T station to Boston and the Mass Pike is very accessible.

Sharon is definitely the place to live. I am from LA as well (but I hated it) and moved to Sharon abut 3 years ago. The schools cannot be beat and there are so many young families. Furthermore, with the housing crisis as it is, you can by relatively cheap.

Good luck

There are two temples in Westboro - one Reform and one Conservative. The schools are very good and the commuter rail makes getting into Boston pretty convenient (although it still will run about an hour on the "express" train). It's not really a walkable downtown but there is a new shopping center just behind downtown that is trying to lure upscale vendors. I believe there are a few nice clothing stores there. We really like the (relatively) new rabbi at B'nai Shalom.

If you can find something in Sudbury though, my money's on that. There's no commuter rail but it's a terrific town with excellent schools, at least 2 temples, lots of young families, community activities, plenty of shopping, etc. Friends of mine belong to the temple on Rt 20 and feel very comfortable there. I've heard the other temple in town is a bit offbeat but having never been there myself I couldn't really comment on that.
