San Jose is situated to provide direct accessibility to major highways and thoroughfares I-95 and San Jose Boulevard, which make for an effortless drive out to Mandarin, (and a bit further south, you’ll see a new construction boom happening in Southern Duval County and Northern St. Johns County). And just across the Buckman Bridge from west Jacksonville and Orange Park. Easy access to I-95 takes the sting out of many a morning commute to just about anywhere in the city, to the Southside, Downtown and the Beaches.
San Jose is a place where residents can find refuge from the daily pace of life, to feed the mind, body, spirit, and sense of play in all of us. The Jewish Community Alliance (JCA) is an affordable, all inclusive fitness center, Olympic sized pool, and tennis court complex, available to the public. There are several other fitness centers, many parks and bike trails that wind throughout the neighborhood, especially on the western side of San Jose Boulevard in the tree shaded, riverfront communities. Houses of worship abound, for every religious affiliation, and San Jose happens to be home to two of Jacksonville’s largest centers of Jewish worship, The Jacksonville Jewish Center and the Temple Achavad Chesed.
