  Celebrating 25 Years

The Shul was created to meet the crucial need that a warm, accessible and user-friendly synagogue
plays in the healthy development of both family and community.

By conducting joyful and exuberant, easy to follow services that include relevant and topical running
commentary and sermons, concurrently with children's programming,
the Family Shul has become one of the fastest growing synagogues in N.J.

An average Shabbat now sees nearly 150 children, women and men both in the services and in related programming.
A modern Shul with cherished traditional values, in a nonjudgmental, friendly and inclusive atmosphere. Come and see how
our wide range of family-oriented activities and warm and welcoming environment are bringing families together.

We encourage and provide a means for Jews of all backgrounds to learn and rekindle a link to their Jewish heritage. This is accomplished through extensive outreach to the Jewish community of Northeast Bergen County, NJ towns of Tenafly, Cresskill, Demarest, Dumont, Englewood Cliffs, Closter and Alpine with programs such as adult education lectures including JLI ( Jewish Learning Institute) courses on Kabbalah/Mysticism, Talmud, Tanya, and weekly Torah portion.

 Other ongoing programs include: Breakfast Club, Israeli Club, Community Outreach, Crisis Counseling, Daily Prayer Services, Holiday Celebrations, Hospital and Nursing Home Visits, Judaica Services, Kashering Homes, Men and Womens Mikvahs (Ritual Baths), Mezuzah Check-ups, One on One Studies, Pesach Seders, and Women's Rosh Chodesh gatherings.

We provide extensive children’s programming including a Day Care, Early Childhood Center, Elementary School, Middle School, Camp Gan Israel- winter and summer day camps, Hebrew School, Bar/Bat Mitzvah Club, Bar/Bat Mitzvah Lessons, Junior Congregation, and Teen770 Community Service and Club.
