I think I meant to say Israel, let me check.
I'm sick of all the Zionism. Who in their right mind would live in Israel??
89k is the yearly salary you need to make to be able to afford the average priced house in LA.

San Diego

Pros:
- Weather is almost always between 60-80F
- lots of activities and attractions (especially for families)
- nice beaches. in the summer the water is usually 70F not to cold.
- the best mexican food and fish tacos in the US
- traffic isnt too bad
- direct flights to all 4 major hawaiian islands
- many nice, safe neighborhood for families. san diego is overall a very safe city for its size.
- less headache and pollution than LA, more exciting than OC, cheaper than SF. Generally nicer people than in the aforementioned cities in CA.


Cons:
- cost of living is one of the highest in the nation. also CA taxes mean everything is more expensive.
- job market is ehh. seems like more and more companies are moving out of area to texas.
- small airport with only 2 long haul international destinations. LAX is over 2 hours away.
- desert meets ocean climate means there is little greenery
- once you live here you will no longer be able to stand the elements in other parts of the country. you will be cold all the time.

I would venture a guess, that based on him not including it in his post, he hasn't got a clue.

Ah. There are definitely right-wing people on the west side of Denver, but no idea if there any any Chassidim and certainly don't know if that particular group has a representation. Others here who live on the west side can answer that I'm sure.

Well then, yes. There's Chabad on the east side of Denver. Not sure about the other "sides" of town. Additionally, there is a Chabad in Vail (not sure if it's year-round) as well as Fort Collins, and I'm sure a bunch of other cities.

Big difference. That's like asking of there's an anash community in Katmandu. (There isn't.)

There is a community on the east side of Denver. The other locations I mentioned are more likely just Chabad houses.
