A groundbreaking ceremony on Sunday, Nov. 14 at 10 a.m. will mark the beginning of construction of the new home of The Sephardic Congregation of Teaneck – Shaarei Orah.

It is the first Sephardic congregation in the greater Teaneck area. The construction is underway and its members invite everyone to attend the groundbreaking for the new synagogue.

Founded in 1994, Shaarei Orah is a vibrant young Congregation that has increased its membership over the course of each year. In 2001, a 12,000 square foot lot was acquired at 1425 Essex Road and designated as the future site of the synagogue; a larger facility to meet the growing needs of our community.

Culminating a process that began in 2002, Jack Varon, Shaarei Orah Chairman of the Board, said, “This building is vitally important in the preservation of a rich heritage that includes both prayer and customs. It gives us an opportunity to pray together and share in each others’ life events in a place that is suitable for our growing membership.”
