About St. Louis:
St. Louis is an accessible, friendly Midwestern city boasting a variety of neighborhoods filled with excellent culture, great parks, events, festivals, a fast-growing startup scene, and kosher Ted Drewes frozen custard (recently rated best in the world ).

Washington University and WashU Hillel are also blocks away from the Delmar Loop, a colorful entertainment district with live music, international cuisine, and abundant independent retail.
St. Louis supports a growing Jewish community of over 61,000, and a vibrant, young Jewish community with MaTovu, Next Dor, Moishe House, and many other organizations that cater to Jewish young adults.
