Hi. I am moving to Dallas from NY and I wanted to find out what neighborhoods in Dallas have more Jewish people living in them than not. Most of the threads refer to Orthodox Jewish people when asking this question. I am NOT orthodox. I am very not religious. I am reform. I do NOT want to live in an orthodox community. What neighborhoods would you recommend I look at to live. I don't want my children to be the only Jewish kids in school.

It might be a good idea to call one of the larger temples in Dallas to find out the answer of your question.

There were plenty of Jewish families near me growing up in West Plano, not Orthodox. For a time, we had some next door neighbors who were Jewish, and lived there for about 5-6 years.

Compared to NYC, the Jewish community is relatively small. But the center of it is in North Dallas, largely between Royal and 635, and surrounding areas mostly to the north (Plano). North Dallas is where the Jewish Community Center, the Jewish Federation of Dallas, and the large Temple Emanu-El (which I believe is reform) are located and where some of the supermarkets carry kosher foods and where a couple of Jewish-style delis are located. You're not going to find that so much in areas south of that, like Uptown, though I'm sure there are plenty of Jewish people in Uptown as it's a very popular area, especially for younger transplants moving in from out of town.

Just to clarify...I don't have a child. I was just thinking about the future when I do eventually have children I don't want them to be the only Jewish kids in their class.

We live in 75287 and on our street and the next one over I know of at least 5 other families that are Jewish. Temple Shalom is another reform congregation in North Dallas.

I had posted a similar thread and received feedback that Plano would be a good fit. Flower Mound has a small synagougue, but another poster indicated that she had taught Hebrew School and that some of her students were the only Jewish kids at their regular schools. You may want to review her responses in the thread comparing Dallas suburbs to the Woodlands in Houston. I have kids and live somewhere where they are the only Jewish kids in their school. I am also a reform Jew who grew up in NY, so it is quite a difference from how I grew up. I am looking for a happy medium- not NY, but where there are some other kids in the school who are Jewish.
