Kesher is a diverse Modern Orthodox Synagogue located on the border of Tenafly and Englewood, N.J., serving the entire Jewish community. The last few years have seen an increasing demand for real estate that is within a walking distance to this synagogue .
The newcomers are mostly young professionals with growing families moving from Manhattan and seeking to be within the Eruv ( according to Jewish law, a designated area within which one is allowed to move on foot on Saturday, without it being considered labor ) .
Tenafly and Englwood neighborhoods that are within about a mile from the synagogue are most desirable. One such home that sold for a young family looking to be within proximity is 11 Whitewood Rd in Tenafly. Another home that close and, that is currently on the market is 377 Elkwood Terrace in Englewood offered for $920,000 and is sitting on a flat 0.7 of an acre .
