“We chose Cincinnati because of the presence of a Modern Orthodox community with extremely affordable housing options. Cincinnati has amenities often only available in much larger cities, i.e., multiple restaurants, three-day school options and a large, state-of-the-art JCC. Added bonus – this is the Midwest, and all of the shuls are warm and welcoming.”
