Each also offers its own unique flavor — with state and county parks, historic landmarks, theaters, and museums, there is something in Westchester for everyone.

    With a Jewish community of more than 150,000, Westchester has synagogues of every stripe and affiliation, as well as active JCCs, chesed groups, and Israel organizations. From UJA to independent minyanim to Jewish basketball leagues, Jewishly speaking, Westchester has it all.
