    There’s a Chabad in Asheville, NC, and another in Lynchburg, VA (associated with Virginia Tech). And there’s a small Orthodox community I think in Harrisburg, PA, which is along the front range of the Appalachians. Other than that, I don’t know of anything.

    The Appalachians extend from Georgia to Canada.

    There are Chabad houses all over the world. The existence of one in a particular location is not a good indicator of an observant Jewish community.

    Can anyone think of a pun using kol/coal? If not, then this thread is a waste.

    Appalachia is bigger than you might think, look at this list of cities, plenty with frum Yidden
    “Within Appalachia, there are several areas of urban concentration, the largest being the Pittsburgh metropolitan area in Pennsylvania. In Alabama, the Greater Birmingham metropolitan area is the largest urban concentration followed by the Huntsville metropolitan area . In Tennessee, the Knoxville metropolitan area and the Chattanooga metropolitan area are the urban clusters.”
