Neighborhood Housing Information

Kesher Israel is located at the corner of 28th and N Street, NW, in Georgetown (2801 N Street, NW, Washington, DC 20007). If you are interested in living in D.C. within walking distance of Kesher, your housing search should focus on the Foggy Bottom, West End, Georgetown, and Dupont Circle neighborhoods. Some people who attend Kesher also live in Rosslyn, VA, which is a longer walk but has cheaper apartments (but not within the eruv).

On average, studies and efficiencies near Kesher rent for $1500-$2200 a month, 1-bedrooms rent for $2000-$3000 a month, and 2-bedrooms rent for $2800-$5500 a month. Some of the apartment buildings near Kesher are condominiums, so you may end up renting from individual apartment owners rather than a company that runs an entire building.

Before you begin your housing search, take some time to think about your minimal housing requirements (e.g. level of Kashrut with a roommate, allergies, pets, etc.). Begin your housing search at least two months before moving to DC. In general, a mixture of internet searches, phone calls, and in-person apartment viewings is the best way to find a place.
