New to Jewish Life In Austin?
The Austin Jewish community, like the general community, has experienced enormous growth in the last 20 years. Although a demographic study has not been done, the estimated number of Jewish people in the Austin area is 15,000-18,000. The population of Austin doubles every twenty years, and Jewish Austin expects to continue following the same trend. This is unique, compared to most Jewish communities which are well-established or even shrinking in size.
The city is attractive for people of all ages, although the majority of growth tends to be among young adults and young families. Many baby boomers are also moving to Austin to spend their retirement years and be closer to their children and grandchildren.
While the epicenter of the Jewish community is in Northwest Austin, the Jewish community is sprawling like the general community south of the river in Circle C Ranch, Western Oaks, and Travis Heights, and north in Georgetown, Round Rock and Cedar Park.
