There is no Jewish retirement community in Metro Atlanta but there are lots of older Jews in certain parts of town. Buckhead and Dunwoody and Sandy Springs come to mind. (The Wiliam Bremen Home is for the frail and disabled, not an active living community at all.)

If you are looking for the amenities of a true 55 plus community, what are you looking for? Golf, tennis or just the social aspects.

In Dallas, TX, the Jewish community has built a 55 plus community.

Are you only interested in Atlanta? There's a synagogue on Lee Blvd in Savannah and I notice that many of the congregation walk there from an adjacent neighborhood.

Late to answer BUT Snellville and the rest of south Gwinnett County is becoming increasingly popular with the Jewish community both native and transplants. The popularity of the relatively young (1988) and wonderful Synagogue, Temple Beth David, in Snellville has brought many Jewish families into the area though there has always been a fine and well respected Jewish presence in south Gwinnett. The housing market has something for every budget and the schools are very good. There are extremely upscale areas such as Governors Walk and Loch Wolde and the newer neighborhoods off Ross Road and even a number of estate type homes on acreage scattered about. As well you will find established upper-middle classed neighborhoods such as Country Club of Gwinnett and the south side of Norris Lake off the water and anything there on the water. As well south Gwinnett offers neighborhoods all the way down to firm and stable middle classed neighborhoods. There are two ways to commute into ATL also which is very attractive and the area is becoming increasingly popular with major celebrities as a look at the online Gwinnett County Property Tax records will evidence. Three bonafide movie stars and a number of nationally noted popular musicians young and old maintain homes in the area, sleuth them out on the County Property Records website LOL. We maintain a second home in the area and are there frequently. I adore it as you may go to the cleaners or grocers in just a few minutes from anywhere there. I also like that there is a very low turnover of houses in south Gwinnett so you do not have an entirely new set of neighbors every few years which is rare around the metro particularly in Cobb and Dunwoody! Snellville also has some Jewish City Councilpeople.
