In observance of the weekly Sabbath, Orthodox Jews walk to synagogue to attend services. When relocating, they face the challenge of finding a home that is within walking distance to a shul. A new online service makes it easier for Orthodox Jews to find these desirable properties., a new online real estate listing service, matches prospective buyers and tenants with properties that are within walking distance to an Orthodox Jewish synagogue, also called a "shul".

"By providing these services, we hope to help ease the challenge that Orthodox Jews worldwide face when relocating," says Ron Gerber of Walk2Shul. "At Walk2Shul, we believe in providing the best forum for members of Orthodox Jewish communities worldwide to buy, sell, and rent their homes located near a shul."

Walk2Shul (available online at currently lists properties in Florida, Los Angeles, New York, and the greater Boston area. Eventually, listings will include sales and rentals from across the world. Membership is free. Members can contact owners of properties, advertise on the site, and sign up for automatic email notification for desired listings.

Resources on the website include real estate calculators, helpful articles on buying and selling real estate, Jewish life articles highlighting lesser known Orthodox communities, and one of the largest directories of Orthodox Jewish synagogues worldwide.

"Anyone can advertise their property on Walk2Shul, whether you're an owner or a real estate agent," says Gerber. "You don't even have to be Jewish, but the property should be less than 1.5 miles from an Orthodox shul. You can list and manage your property yourself, anytime, 24-7, and communicate directly and privately with buyers and tenants. And best of all, you pay no commission!"

"Since homes within walking distance to a Shul tend to sell at higher than average prices, it just made sense to list my house on Walk2Shul," says D.G., a homeowner. "In only a few weeks, my listing has been viewed dozens of times - and it is only winter right now!"
