About Us:
We are Shomrei Torah, the Wayne Conservative Congregation, which was founded in 1973 to serve the Greater Wayne Jewish community. From our humble beginnings, when services were held in a one room building, to our present facility with its jewel-like sanctuary, Shomrei Torah has grown and continues to evolve. Shomrei Torah is affiliated with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism and is an egalitarian congregation - both men and women contribute to our vitality in equal measure. We are a synagogue that is open to and welcoming of interfaith families and we provide opportunities for everyone to become involved in congregational life. While our outlook is progressive, our atmosphere is clearly "haimishe" (warm and friendly). From the moment a member of our family welcomes you to our community, you will realize that Shomrei Torah is not merely a destination for fulfilling religious pursuits, but is also your Jewish home away from home.
