OU’s virtual home relocation fair

The Orthodox Union will hold its “Jewish Community Home Relocation Fair” online on Sunday, February 13. The fair is for people who are considering relocation. The new online platform allows participants around the world to explore dozens of communities in the United States and Israel. The last eight biennial fairs were held in person in Manhattan.

Registration is open for young families, retirees, empty nesters, singles, newly married couples, and everyone else who is considering moving to an Orthodox community. The fair will include 52 booths, representing more than 60 Orthodox Jewish communities in 22 states and Israel.

The communities include Albany; Wilkes Barre/Scranton; Chesterfield, MO; Savannah; Buffalo Grove, IL. They also include West Orange.

This year’s fair will be the largest yet and will feature 17 new communities. Nefesh B’Nefesh, one of its major sponsors, will offer such sessions as “Intro to Aliyah” and “Choosing a Community.”

Rebbetzin Judi Steinig, the OU’s senior director of community projects and partnerships, oversees the fair and works with featured communities before and after to ensure participants get the most out of the experience.

The fair is 10 hours long; participants can make private appointments with community representatives before, during, and after it. Highlights include videos showcasing communities, e-brochures for immediate downloads, and discussion groups.
