Check on some of the threads here. Being Jewish isn't a huge deal in the US. Are you planning on living in White Plains or just working there? If you've not been to White Plains it might be worth a 12h plane ride to come up, take a look and see White Plains and other nearby areas of Westchester.

What is your housing budget?

Are you asking from the stand point of religious tolerance? Or about the public schools system. There is a very strong Jewish community in NY and in general in the US especially in NY all religions are welcome and live together beautifully. Good luck to you.

Que bueno que le gusta White Plains!!! You should be happy there.
Many Jewish people prefer to send their kids to Jewish schools but the ones that go to public do well too. I lived in WP for 8 years and never saw any dislike for Jewish or any other religious belief. Not even during the 9/11 times. Many nacionalities with different religious beliefs live and thrive in WP. You might know there are a number of Argentinans living there as well as Brazilians and other nacionalities from South America so you won't feel alone there either. White Plains is an small city unlike any other.
Suerte!

White Plains has a large Jewish population and a large South American population.
The public schools are good and Solomon Schechter has 2 local schools.

All the best!

I think this topic has misleading name, it should be called "Relocating with Jewish Kids".
