    Is there a Jewish community in Worcester Massachusetts?

    I think I once met a Modern Orthodox girl from there, but it was more than 30 years ago.

    There are Mod Ortho OU. Young Israel. Chabad, JCC, Federation, Home for the aged, Chabad Day School Pre-K-12.

    My nephew and family lived in Worcester for 10 years until 3 years ago when she found the commute to Harvard a bit much and they moved to Newton.

    Typical OOT non-yeshiva community, which means most Jews attending Orthodox and Day schools are NOT Yeshivish or frum.

    Joseph – does this mean you can’t be friends with CTL anymore?

    @Joseph
    No, he’s a Brisker
    But academic circumstances (2 professorships) kept them there for a time

    Is a very short Brisker called a Briskette?

    @Huju
    A briskette would be the unmarried daughter of a Brisker
