The days of thinking that Jewish life can only flourish in big cites like New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles are a thing of the past.  Rabbi Brent Spodek and his Emek Project are proof of that.

Taking one look at the project’s FAQ, it’s evident that Spodek’s community is both a warm and welcoming one where Pig eaters, atheist Jews, and Jews married to non-Jews are welcome (as are their non-Jewish spouses and children).

You’ve been thinking about getting out of the city for a long time now.  Maybe the peace and quiet of the country, and Rabbi Spodek can convince you to move just north of NYC.
