Orthodox Jews have been in Las Vegas for many years now, while small compared to many Jewish communities elsewhere the community continues to grow despite the large distance to the nearest large Jewish population center Los Angeles, California.

The Young Israel Aish of Las Vegas, is in the middle of the suburban communities of Summerlin, The Lakes, and Peccole Ranch communities. There are plenty of affordable homes as well as rentals in the vicinity of the synagogue. There are currently three Chabad Synagogues, Chabad of Summerlin, the Chabad of Arville and the only Sephardic synagogue, Or Bamidbar Chabad Sephardic Synagogue located in East Las Vegas. The largest orthodox synagogue, Bet Yossef Community Center has a preschool and state-of-the-art community center. There are Reform and Conservative synagogues throughout the Vegas area as well.

Hebrew day schools include The Desert Torah Academy is a Chabad school with a Torah Tots preschool, , Yeshiva Day School of Las Vegas a small orthodox yeshiva, and The Adelson Educational Campus a PreK - 12 school catering to children who come from less traditional Jewish homes. For the Orthodox there is the Mesivta of Las Vegas high school for boys and the Ateres Bnos Ita high school for girls. The Solomon Schechter Day School has permanently closed in 2020.

The Jewish communities in Las Vegas have an Eruv. Mikvas are located at the Bet Yossef Community Center, Chabad of Summerlin, and the Chabad of Southern Nevada.

Vegas gets lots of visitors, and visitors mean kosher. There are a number of kosher restaurants in Las Vegas as well as kosher products at local supermarkets. There is plenty of shipping in the Vegas area including Cosco. With no state income tax and its proximity to California, there is no question this dessert city will continue to grow.

Las Vegas has the McCarran International Airport as well as the smaller North Las Vegas Airport. There is a private airfield south of Vegas, the Henderson Executive Airport. Henderson just outside of Las Vegas is a short distance from Boulder City, which has a municipal airport as well. Highways include Interstate 15, 215, and 515. Besides the Vegas Strip, there are plenty of attractions catering to the tourist who visits the gambling capital of the U.S.
