Important Message regarding Security

  A message from the Safety & Security Committee

In conjunction with the Highland Park Police Department’s security outreach to religious communities, Officer Brian O’Mara, HPPD’s Representative and Liaison will address our Congregation on Saturday, January 18th, Parashat Shemot after Musaf with a very brief discussion of current proactive security measures, best practices “what each person should know” and outline a Response Model to Active Threats. The entire Congregation is urged to attend.
Feel free to contact Jonathan Gotlib, 908-308-5122, to volunteer for security activities.

Congregation Ohav Emeth is located in the geographic center of the Highland Park / Edison observant community in New Jersey. Our membership spans the range of halacha-committed Jews, with an attitude of achdut (unity) and religious tolerance. We share a love for Medinat Yisrael and a serious commitment to Torah study for every age and gender and at every level. We have a multitude of ongoing educational and social programs as well as frequent special events.

Please explore our web site to learn more about our active synagogue and dynamic community.

Dedication Opportunity

There are a number of benches in the Main Shul in both the men’s and women’s sections that have not yet been dedicated and are available at a dedication amount of $1800 per bench. Installment payments are acceptable. If you have not as yet contributed to the renovations and/or have a simcha or other occasion to memorialize please consider this opportunity. Each bench will be recognized with a “Dedicated by .....” plaque on the end of the bench, and with a more detailed plaque with dedication wording of your choosing in the hallway on the beautiful new main dedication board currently under production. For more details or for other dedication opportunities,
please contact Norman Heyden at or Michael Garber at

With lockers now available for the safe-keeping of your tallit, tefillin, siddur, etc, we would appreciate that nothing be left behind on the benches following davening.  We appreciate your assistance in helping to keep our shul neat and in order.  Lockers are just $100 per year.  Contact the OE Office for rental details.
