I am looking forward to move to a yishuv, preferably less than 20 minutes from Yerushalayim, or a neighborhood into East Yerushalayim proper.

I am searching for a place with a sizeable anglo community, or french-speaking moroccans, that's affordable and possibly groups like Chabad or Breslov having a presence there. A mikveh for men would really help too.

So far I've only really saw Kochav Yaakov-Tel Zion and Maaleh Adumim that could somewhat be what I am looking for, but the latter might be a bit too pricey for me.

Any suggestions?

Oh and I am a social guy, pretty outgoing and warm, and I like communities that are open and like that as well, not too closed and private where people don't get involved with each others at all.

edit: and yeah the more I read abuot it, the more Kochav Yaakov sounds like the kind of place I where I should go

Yeah, Bat Ayin seems to be a rather nice place, but I kind of worry it might be a bit too... frum hippie? Also, is it really that close to yerushalayim? I had the impression it was way south.

Might be a misconception though.

Also, more of a general question to everyone: how is life in caravans?

In terms of pricing, it seems nice and would let me spend half of my day in kollel and half day working without having to worry too much about money.

Sounds like you and Village would get along well.

frum "hippie" it is - not for everyone.

We're very interested in Mitzpe Yericho. I could find a website about it that I was sent, but it's in Hebrew. Would that help you?
