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 lovely community.

 In honor of the Centennial Anniversary of Congregation Ohav Emeth, we are offering special dedication opportunities.

To place business cards or flyers on the shul’s cork boards by the restrooms, please submit them to the office. Flyers placed in other locations will be removed.


At this time, we would like to invite our members to create accounts on this new Congregation Ohav Emeth website (, hosted by ShulCloud. ShulCloud, an established system that hosts several hundred synagogue websites and back-office operations, is quite secure.

Briefly, login access to the website will allow you to do the following:

  • Review your financial account with the Shul and make payments to the Shul via Credit Card or PayPal
  • Review and edit your family’s profile, including names and ages of family members, yahrtzeit reminders, and other personal information

In order to get access, just email the website administrator at and make sure to include your name. If both spouses in a 2-adult family would like access, each should email the administrator separately. Each spouse will be able to access the full account. The administrator will activate your account and you will be sent an email invitation to set your password and log onto the site.

For now, the gabbai will continue to maintain the yahrtzeit lists that are used in shul. The yahrtzeits in ShulCloud will be used to generate reminder letters prior to the date of the yahrtzeit, as we currently do.

For now, the shul office will continue to maintain the shul email list for announcements and other broadcasts. If you are not on the email list and would like to be, please contact the office separately.
In the future, the site will also enable you to sign up for events, reserve High Holiday seats, sign up for Torah reading, and other functions not possible on our old site.

Account access is currently being offered to members and associate members only.


PLEASE NOTE: When payments to the shul are made online, it will be automatically applied to your account ONLY if you are logged in first. If you do not log in, the office must transfer the payment manually to your account. Please make every effort to log in before making payments online. Thank you!

--Steve Stein, Ohav Emeth ShulCloud Administrator
