Why Move To East Brunswick?

Testimonials

"We moved to East Brunswick from Riverdale, NY in 2011. From our first visit, we felt a true sense of community. We always wondered what it was about East Brunswick that made our friends who grew up here such friendly, kind, and well-rounded people. Now we understand. People in this community genuinely care about each other and those traits are passed on to the next generation of kids. The neighborhood is aesthetically beautiful and quiet. Where else can you drive three minutes and go apple picking on a farm? We are really excited to raise our family here and consider ourselves lucky to have found this gem of a community that so few people know about!" - Ruthie and Ely Rosenstock

"Fourteen years ago, we had hardly heard of East Brunswick! We were living in Manhattan and Alan had just taken a job in Princeton. At a Purim seudah, “cousins of cousins” said “why don’t you come to us for a Shabbat to check out East Brunswick?” And the rest is history. The Young Israel of East Brunswick truly is a home to us. It is such an integral part of our lives and the lives of our children. Our youngest daughter loves Shabbat groups and FYI Israel, our middle daughter can’t wait to go back to TLC camp, and our son is active in the Teen Minyan. We count many close friends with whom we have shared the past fourteen years. Moving here was the best decision!" - Ruth and Alan Bash

"We moved to East Brunswick eight years ago from Kew Garden Hills, NY. East Brunswick is one of the warmest communities we have ever encountered. Everyone at YIEB treats us as a son and daughter, brother and sister. In our Shul everyone knows your name and every individual is an integral part of the whole. We also love how YIEB embraces diversity within the Orthodox community and is tremendously inclusive when it comes to the Jewish community at large." Ilana and Mendy Bohm

"We were newlyweds living in Manhattan and wanted to find a place to settle down. Six years ago, we discovered a hidden treasure - the town of East!!  Brunswick! We are so happy that we found a place where we could still access the City and Philadelphia too! It’s filled with many families, both young and “young at heart”. We love going to Shul on Shabbat to catch up with our friends at the Kiddush, enjoying Shabbat lunches together and meeting at the “Shabbat Park” where the kids have a blast! YIEB has something for everyone whether it’s the amazing youth programs, Israel advocacy events, adult education, or social events. The list goes on and on…" - Alisha and David Fertig

"Young Israel of East Brunswick became our home 35 years ago when we moved from Rochester, NY, for Dan to start a new job. The community has been our family all these years. They have joined in our simchas and given us support in difficult times. We have enjoyed working together to strengthen the community and look forward to being here to watch it continue to develop into an even more vibrant Orthodox community." - Sarita and Dan Sragow

"We moved to East Brunswick in 2001 from Riverdale, NY. We love living “out of town” where the people are warm and friendly. One can find beautiful affordable homes with large properties. Even as the YIEB community continues to grow, each and every individual and family makes a difference!" - Iva and Steven Dyckman

"Our family moved from Elizabeth, NJ 12 years ago. Our four children have grown up here, and the Young Israel of East Brunswick plays an integral role in their lives. The entire community is so warm and caring. YIEB offers a wide array of programs for members of all ages. We are so glad that we chose East Brunswick as our home. We recommend it to anyone looking for a small town with a lot to offer!" - Larissa and Tony Elk

"We met in high school at the JEC. We grew up in New Jersey and wanted to settle here. East Brunswick has been a wonderful place to raise our five children. Not only is it a warm, friendly community, but we especially love that we are friends with people of all ages. It is so nice to see the kids playing together around the neighborhood; it is not uncommon to see an eight year old playing ball with a teenager. Even today our grown children who live in the City are in constant contact with their friends from home. East Brunswick truly is an extension of our family." - Lori and Jeff Moskowitz

"We both grew up in the tri-state area (Highland Park, NJ and Brooklyn, NY). When we were looking for a place to settle and raise a family we wanted a warm community with an “out of town” vibe but still allowed us to be near our work in New York City. We found that balance here in East Brunswick for the past 11 years. East Brunswick is a very special community made up of people from varying backgrounds where everyone can feel comfortable and there is no shortage of friends!" - Elana and Eli Baumgarten

"We crossed over the bridge from Highland Park to move to East Brunswick in 2005. From the first day we moved into East Brunswick, we were immediately welcomed by this warm and friendly community. Everyone made an effort to meet us and invite us over for a Shabbat meal. Our children go to preschool and camp programs at the Shul and have made their first and closest friends here. We feel extremely fortunate to be part of this great community." - Stacy and David Weissman

"As our friends started looking for a place to settle down, we always told them that they had to check out East Brunswick. Joseph grew up here. The people are warm, the Shul is the hub of the community, there are options in education, and beautiful affordable homes on spacious lots. Then at one point, we asked ourselves, why couldn’t we also move to East Brunswick?! Now, here we are! We bought a house and moved in March 2013!" - Shira and Joseph Shmulewitz
