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.

During this time of Covid-19 where most of us are isolating ourselves in our homes, we would like to acknowledge and thank our congregation members and children of members who are the true heroes: those in the medical community on the front line; all essential workers; everyone making protective masks/devices; anyone helping to feed the needy; our first responders; and those helping neighbors and isolated seniors.

Jessica Walker who is a nurse at Hackensack Hospital working overtime in the dialysis unit helping Covid-19 patients with dialysis.
Rebecca Levin, daughter of Miriam & Alan Levin, who is an ER nurse at Holy Name Hospital.  
Elizabeth Fine who is on the front lines at Holy Name Hospital in Teaneck as a patient advocate screening all visitors and others arriving at the hospital. 
If you know someone in our congregation or relative of someone in our congregation, please submit their name, what they are doing and a photo (if permissible) to info@fljc.com.  You can also snail-mail your "hero story" to our office at FLJC/CBI, 10-10 Norma Ave. Fair Lawn, NJ 07410 and we will be happy to share it with our community.
Thank you to all of our Heroes!
