Raleigh, known as “The City of Oaks,” is the capital of North Carolina. It is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country and regularly places towards the top of national “quality of life” and “best place to live” rankings. Lively, smart and unexpected, Raleigh's historic landmarks and burgeoning cosmopolitan offerings in a one-of-a-kind capital setting make it a “can't miss” cultural and entertainment center of the Southeast.
Raleigh, located in an area known as the Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill), is also a great place to be Jewish. The Jewish population is growing rapidly and behaves like a community much larger. This vibrant Jewish community includes nine congregations (including Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Reconstructionist and Humanistic), a Jewish Community Center in Durham (and a new one currently being built in Raleigh) and The Lerner Jewish Community Day School in Durham. Moreover, the Jewish federations located in Durham-Chapel Hill, Raleigh-Cary, Greensboro and Charlotte work together to form a strong connection across NC.
