welcomelogo Congregation Bnai Yeshurun, located in Teaneck, New Jersey, is an Orthodox synagogue of approximately 800 member and affiliate families that just recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. During that period, it has been the catalyst for the development of Teaneck as one of the premier Orthodox communities in the United States, with the full variety of local Jewish establishments as well as close to a dozen other shuls in our vicinity.

Bnai Yeshurun is a classic mega-shul - but in the variety of minyanim catering to different needs and personalities, we retain the small shul feel of closeness and camaraderie.

I try to bring a passion and verve to my activities - whether through my shiurim, drashot or activism. We are extremely proud to be in the forefront of American shuls that have fought for the right of Jewish settlement throughout the land of Israel, and even prouder of the contributions we have made to Israel - Sifrei Torah donated to six different yeshivot (in Yerushalayim, Hevron, the Golan, Elon Moreh and elsewhere), children's parks, mobile gyms/shuls for the use of soldiers of the IDF, and a bus for the residents of Hevron. There are plaques adorning the walls of numerous institutions and places in Israel honoring our efforts, of all which have given us a share in the mitzva of Yishuv Eretz Yisrael.

Personally, I am a graduate of Columbia University and Cardozo School of Law, amusmach of Yeshiva Bnei Torah (under the leadership of Rav Yisrael Chait, shlit"a), and practiced law for 13 years in New York City before coming to Teaneck and Bnai Yeshurun in 1994. Despite the shul's size, I make every effort to know every member family (i.e., if they want me to know them, and they want to know me) !

We welcome all new members who share our values and aspirations, and I look forward to greeting you in Bnai Yeshurun and, together, building the Torah community of tomorrow.


Rabbi Steven Pruzansky
