Historic Shaare Zedek Synagogue

For over a century, Congregation Shaare Zedek has served the Orthodox Jewish community
of northern Hudson County in New Jersey, including West New York, Guttenberg, North Bergen, Weehawken and Union City.

In 2012 we celebrated our Centennial. Some of our families have been with us since the beginning over a hundred years ago.

If you are part of our history, we invite you to contribute your story to our virtual book.

If you are new to Shaare Zedek we welcome you with open arms.

The synagogue is temporarily closed while we fix some building code violations and settle some fines.

When we reopen, we have services on Shabbat at 9:30 AM, and also on Jewish holidays.

We often have maariv on Friday - call us to check on the status: (201) 867-6859

Synagogue Temporarily Closed - Appeal for Donations

The City of West New York has closed the synagogue temporarily, while we correct some building code violations and settle fines that accrued because of the violations.

Donations are welcome to speed the re-opening!

Let's face it: our building is almost 100 years young, and it needs some upkeep.

The Jewish Standard Wrote About Our Centennial

NJ Jewish Standard covers the Centennial of Shaare Zedek of West New York, NJ

The New Jersey Jewish Standard

Dan Kaminsky notified the Jewish Standard that we are celebrating 100 years next week.

Their article, "Oy the tzoris of it all" appeared in the online New Jersey version of the paper,
noting "The last synagogue in West New York turns 100 next week."
It also notes that our congregation is growing (slowly) and diversely, with Cubans, Israelis
and descendants of the founding families in the current congregation.

We look forward to another century serving the community of West New York! Read the article
