Do You Know There is a Non-Profit Jewish Funeral Home? – Yes. The Jewish Memorial Chapel is located on Allwood Road in Clifton about 15 minutes from Shomrei Emunah.

Do You Know Congregation Shomrei Emuanh is A Delegate Organization? Yes, we have been a delegate organization since 1994. When the Nutley Temple joined Shromei Emunah, it brought its membership with them.

Do You Know Non-Profit Means Funeral Costs are Less? Yes. Being Non-Profit the Jewish Memorial Chapel covers it costs. Funerals are anywhere from approximately one-third to one-half less than at a for-profit funeral home. The licensed professional staff conducts funerals with dignity and in strict compliance with Halacha (Jewish Law).

Do You Know What the Jewish Memorial Chapel Does With Surplus Funds? After all expenses, the Jewish Memorial Chapel will dispense any excess funds. Shomrei Emunah just received a $3,600 check from the Chapel. It is being used toward unrecoverable expenses associated with the main water pipe break. Continue reading

Tot Shabbat is a joyful and engaging program geared toward families with young children, ages 5 and under (older siblings are welcome too). This 45-minute program includes Shabbat themed songs, dancing, stories, a Torah parade, simple blessings, and challah and juice too!

Bring your friends and meet other families with small children as we celebrate Shabbat with the youngest members of our community! All are welcome, and synagogue membership is not required. Afterwards, stay and join our entire congregation for our Shabbat Kiddush Luncheon at 12:15pm (approx).


The Service is led by Lily Lucey.
