About Congregation Beth Israel of the Palisades at the New Synagogue of Fort Lee 1585 Center Ave Fort Lee, NJ 07024

Congregation Beth Israel of the Palisades is one of the only remaining Conservative, egalitarian congregations in Southeast Bergen County.  Our community is a result of 3 mergers during the last 5 years.  Former synagogues  were located in Cliffside Park and North Bergen.  Last year we merged with the New Synagogue of Fort Lee and moved into their building.  We are a warm, welcoming group who enjoy the fellowship of Shabbat services and the kiddush lunches that follow.  We are looking for a Rabbi who will help raise our profile and grow our membership by reaching out to the many unaffiliated Jews in our area.
