I am relocating to New Jersey and am looking at the Princeton area. My only concern was whether there is strong enough jewish community. does anyone have any information to share? I am a reform jew from Long Island (Great Neck) and have a very strong cultural tie to my heritage (lived in israel, speak hebrew) but am not kosher. Please advise (synagogues, jewish day schools, nearby jewish towns - i.e., lawrenceville?, % of jews, etc).

This probably won't be too helpful, but I know many Jewish people in the area so you definitely won't be alone. I have Jewish relatives, friends, and acquaintances in Monroe, Plainsboro, South Brunswick, Lawrenceville, and Trenton. Also there at least a couple Jewish agencies (Jewish Family Services, Greenwood House Nursing Home come to mind) I know of in the Princeton area through my job, that are primarily staffed with Jewish employees and I would imagine most of those employees live locally.

You can find area synogogues here:
Area Places of worship (http://www.princetonol.com/local/religion.shtml - broken link)

Best of luck and welcome to Mercer County.

highland park is a predominantly jewish town - but it's not right next to princeton unfortunately, but not a bad commute either, especially if you're used to LI traffic. it's about 20 miles north of princeton, right near rutgers....
