Why Shomrei Torah? Why Fair Lawn?

Over the last several years, the Shomrei Torah community has expanded with the addition of many young couples and families, who are both renting and buying houses, and calling Fair Lawn ‘home.'
The reasons families are moving to Shomrei Torah and Fair Lawn are clear…

Shomrei Torah

Is Established: Having an active membership of approximately 300 families, Shomrei Torah provides the full infrastructure that young families need, including Shabbos groups, a top nursery school, a mikvah, and established and respected leadership, led by Rabbi Benjamin Yudin and Rabbi Andrew Markowitz.
Is Growing: With a vibrant Young Couple’s Shabbos minyan, new families are moving in all the time. Visit for a Shabbos, hang around the kiddush, and re-connect with all the people you didn’t realize moved to Fair Lawn. Just remember where you parked your child’s stroller, as there are a lot of them!
Is Welcoming: Shomrei Torah takes it’s chesed seriously. Shabbos invites are the norm, and the parade of meals provided to new moms never ends. Those new to the shul are offered discounted membership that includes credit which can be used for shul events and receive discounted nursery school rates.
Is Unique and Diverse: Shomrei Torah is large enough to hold four different Shabbos morning minyanim, yet small enough to be a place where you know nearly everybody and build close bonds with people both inside and outside of your age group.

Fair Lawn

Is Affordable: Those looking to buy a home will find lovely houses and yards in one of the most affordable Jewish communities in the area. For those wishing to rent while they grow roots in the community, there are local and beautiful apartments of all sizes and price points including the Fair Lawn Commons, which hosts a Shabbos evening and afternoon Shomrei Torah satellite minyan.
Is Accessible: Express trains and buses allow for a quick and easy commute to all parts of Manhattan, and the 20 minute drive to NYC allows parents to sneak off for a night on the town.
Is Comfortable: With its own kosher restaurants and just 10 minutes from Teaneck and several upscale malls, Fair Lawn residents can shop and dine without going far. With an Eruv that spans the whole town, residents can walk to all of their friends and parks and take their children ‘all about town’ on a Shabbos aftenoon.
Is Child-friendly: A centrally located Shabbos park (which hosts a Shabbos afternoon shiur with Rabbi Markowitz) makes for weekly Shabbos playdates on demand. There is a town pool with a great kiddie-area where you will find our youngest members on hot summer days, and a town Recreation Center that hosts youth athletics and cultural programs. Just a few minutes from many Yeshiva Day Schools, Fair Lawn allows for easy busing or car-pooling when it’s time to get back to the books.
