Welcome to The Fair Lawn Jewish Center / Congregation B'nai Israel

The Fair Lawn Jewish Center/Congregation B’nai Israel is a Conservative, traditional-egalitarian synagogue that has been at the center of Jewish life in Fair Lawn and neighboring communities for the past seventy years. We are a welcoming and inclusive congregation in which all members are made to feel comfortable and at home. We take great pride in our vibrant community, and look forward to sharing our traditions with new members and passing on our legacy to future generations.

We offer daily morning and evening minyanim and weekly Shabbat services throughout the year in addition to services for all Jewish holidays. Our synagogue is dedicated to education for learners of any age, with an active Religious School and Adult Education program. Other important arms of FLJC/CBI include an active Men’s Progress club and vibrant Sisterhood program, both of which provide plenty of opportunities for tzedakah projects, special events and various activities.
