Welcome to the source of everything Jewish in South Bergen county and the Meadowlands!
Our Shul was established in 1919, and has served many generations of Jews from all over South Bergen County including Carlstadt, East Rutherford, Garfield, Harrison, Hasbrouck-Heights, Kearny, Little Ferry, Lodi, Lyndhurst, Moonachie, North Arlington, Rutherford, Secaucus, Teterboro, Wallington and Wood Ridge.
Our goal is to cater to each and every Jew regardless of background or degree of commitment. We present opportunities to discover the relevance, joy and meaning of our shared heritage in a warm, welcoming and non-judgmental environment.
We have ongoing events for all tastes and ages. We have weekly Shabbat services and Adults education classes, as well as Shabbat parties and a Hebrew school for children. In addition we have a monthly “Soup & Scotch” on Friday evenings, as well as holiday programs throughout the year.
Our Rabbi, Rabbi Yitzchok Lerman, and his family joined us in the summer of 2014, and have opened a Sunday Hebrew school and greatly expanded many of our programs.
Rabbi Lerman is a chabad rabbi from Brooklyn, NY, and has received his Rabbinic ordination from Rabbi Y.M. Lau, former Chief Rabbi of Israel. Rabbi Lerman has over a decade of teaching and curriculum experience, and is a professor at the Rabbinical College of America in Morristown, NJ. Rabbi Lerman is also an officer and chaplain in the US Air Force reserve.
Bina is from Melbourne, Australia. After graduating from high school, Bina moved to Israel to study education in the holy city of Tzfat where she graduated with a teaching degree from the State of Israel. Bina is the director of our Hebrew School, and has over a decade of experience teaching at elementary and middle school levels. She also teaches at Cheder Lubavitch middle school in Morristown, NJ.
Rabbi and Bina are the directors of Chabad of the Meadowlands, with a focus on assisting Jewish residents and visitors to the Meadowlands area. Chabad of the Meadowlands has furthered its services and programs by establishing an additional center in Hasbrouck Heights in the spring of 2019.
All are welcome to try out any of our services and programs, including our annual public Menorah lighting, Purim feast, Passover public Seder, and other events.
