Our Mission

Shomrei Emunah is the spiritual home of a warm and inviting community of Jews in and around Montclair, New Jersey, a progressive and diverse enclave just 12 miles west of Manhattan. It is a town known for its high concentration of people engaged in the arts, media, politics, and the professions, and combines an urban sensibility with the very best of suburban life.

Like the place in which we live, our synagogue embraces members from an unusually wide range of backgrounds and ways of living Jewish. 

With pride in our congregation’s long and proud history, we strive to build a contemporary community that welcomes individuals, couples and families of diverse backgrounds and orientations to join, grow and thrive with us.

Shomrei Emunah weaves us all together in an intimate environment as we observe an egalitarian, vibrant Judaism, balancing openness and traditional practice in a variety of ways; renew and sustain our connections to our heritage through learning and ritual; celebrate and share the cycles of life, and seek to nurture one another, our neighbors, Israel, and the world at large with our energy, time, and acts of loving kindness. We aspire to be a beacon of social consciousness and action.

We welcome all who wish to worship or affiliate with us. We are affiliated with the Big Tent Judaism Coalition and with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism.
