We are an “out of town” community where Middos and Limud HaTorah are the focal point. Located in Western NY between Buffalo and Syracuse, being part of our close-knit kehilla means that you are not just another face in the crowd. We boast super affordable housing in a safe, upscale neighborhood, where you can purchase a 3-4 bedroom home for under $200,000. Additionally, our community is only a 3 hour drive from Toronto and 4 hours from Monsey, making it easy to visit family and friends. It’s a winning situation!

Whatever your stage in life, Rochester has something to offer. There are schools and Yeshivos to guide a person from preschool through Kollel, as well as many learning programs for adult men and women. Children receive personalized education from dedicated Morahs and Rabbeim who strive to help each student reach his or her potential through a variety of learning styles. Several Shuls and various Davening options for both weekdays and Shabbos, along with daily Shiurim round out the deal. Despite our size, Rochester is definitely a true Makom Torah.

The quality of life in Rochester is further enhanced by the low cost of living- 45% lower than in NYC! (source: Practically, that means that if you are earning $80,000 a year now, you will need to earn less than $44,000 in Rochester to maintain the same standard of living! Career opportunities are available in a variety of fields, and we are happy to aid in job searches using our local connections and relationships with staffing agencies. Due to the ease of highway travel here (where “rush hour” is defined as having to drive at the speed limit), commuting to jobs in nearby cities is a breeze.

If all that isn’t enough to pique your interest, here is one more incentive for considering Rochester. Derech HaTorah of Rochester, our Yeshiva elementary school is currently offering a fantastic tuition break for new students. New families pay a flat rate of $1,000 per year for ALL of their childrens’ tuition for their first two years in Rochester. That’s right. Whether you will be sending one child or eight, all you will pay is $1,000!

So, if you are looking to relocate your family to a community where you can make a difference, where your children will have wonderful, wholesome friends, and where Torah hashkafos guide your way of life, don’t waste another day. We are waiting to welcome you!
