The Jewish Community in the Bend

South Bend has been home to a vibrant and thriving Jewish population for over 140 years, and we're proud to say the Jewish community is still increasing. Families are attracted to the low cost of living and welcoming atmosphere that South Bend and greater Jewish Michiana offer.

Jewish South Bend is pleased to have three synagogues, fantastic Jewish education from Pre-K to 8th grade at South Bend Hebrew Day School, 9th-12th grades at Bais Yaakov High School of Indiana and Yeshiva Gedolah of South Bend, a Kollel, Mikvah, an updated Eruv, a variety of Kosher eating and grocery options, and a warm, friendly, and welcoming Jewish community.


South Bend is the 4th-largest city in Indiana and is the economic hub of Northern Indiana. Low cost-of-living and a friendly community attract those tired of the hustle and bustle of big-city life. Don't fret though - Chicago is less than a two-hour drive away for anything South Bend can't provide.
