Announcements #104: Attention Young Couples in NY Area

Attention young couples living in the NY metro area...

The Orthodox community of Stamford, CT, is planning a Shabbaton on the weekend of June 19-20, 2009 for young couples looking to relocate to the suburbs. This Shabbaton will give young couples and their families an opportunity to meet residents of the Orthodox community in Stamford over a Shabbat weekend. You’ll be able to learn about the advantages of living in this flourishing community, and connect with other like-minded families also interested in relocating to the suburbs.

Stamford has two Orthodox synagogues, an Orthodox day school (K-8), and a Chabad nursery school program and summer camp. It also boasts a kosher bakery and dairy eatery at the JCC, mikveh, eruv, Chevra Kadisha, Daf Yomi, full array of adult education programs, Yeshiva gedola with chavrusa learning for adults and children, youth groups and activities, teen minyan, and a Shomer Shabbat baseball program.

Houses, condos, and rentals are all available within walking distance of the two shuls, and it takes only 43 minutes to get to Grand Central on the Metro North train and less than an hour from Manhattan, Riverdale, Queens, Teaneck, Monsey, and the Five Towns.

And there are JOBS in the area ... Stamford is a major commercial center with an array of employment opportunities available!
