On Tuesday evening, four active Shomrei members – all of whom are involved in volunteering at Shomrei – took part in disaster training called Stop the Bleed.

Michael and Lindsey Sag moved to Montclair more than seven years ago, just before the arrival of their daughter, Jordan. They were drawn to Montclair and subsequently Shomrei by Lindsey’s brother, David Brooks and his family. In addition to Jordan, a second grader at the Charles H. Bullock school, they have a four year old son, Noah, who attends Park Street Academy. Lindsey and Michael are both theatre managers, who have worked on plays and musicals on Broadway, off-Broadway, in the Berkshires and all the way to China. In their spare time, they love to have dance parties in their living room.
We are delighted that Michael, Lindsay, Jordan, & Noah are now members of the Shomrei family!
