Areas and locations where Orthodox Jews live in significant communities. These are areas that have within them an Orthodox Jewish community in which there is a sizable and cohesive population, which has its own community organizations, businesses, day schools, yeshivas and/or synagogues that serve the members of the local Orthodox community and may at times be the majority of the population.

NOTE: This category does NOT mean that the place listed is inhabited entirely by Orthodox Jews, nor that Orthodox Jews constitute the majority of the population of the place listed. While some of the communities listed are nearly entirely Orthodox, most are cohesive Orthodox communities (as defined above) that exist within a larger, non-Orthodox community. In many cases there are other cohesive communities within the same place made up of other religious and / or ethnic groups.
