Fair Lawn, NJ United States – OU Communities

About this community

Modern. Orthodox. Young. And Young at Heart. Fair Lawn is the Jewish community for young families who want to live close enough to New York to take advantage of the city’s exceptional Jewish education, business and professional opportunities, and cultural institutions, stay close to family, yet seek a slower paced lifestyle, friendly environment, open areas, and an easy commute.

Located in the heart of Bergen County, the Borough of Fair Lawn packs a world of Jewish living within its five square miles. Seven orthodox synagogues are located within the Fair Lawn eruv.  Kosher dining and take-out (dairy and meat), an acclaimed kosher bakery and a kosher supermarket means delicious choices for dining in or out. Five exceptional orthodox pre-schools offer options for socialization and early education. Families with school-age children can select from five elementary and four high schools, all within a few miles of home. Housing options range from affordable apartments to three, four, and five bedroom homes. Borough amenities include 13 parks, a six-mile bike/walking/jogging path, new recreation center, and one of the largest libraries in the county. New York City commuters will appreciate easy access via NJTransit train and bus to midtown or Wall Street and proximity to major highways. But you don’t need to leave to get great prices on clothing, hardware, electronics or anything else: Fair Lawn abuts 5 major shopping malls and the numerous smaller malls and stores that line Routes 4 and 17.

Participated in Fair 2013, 2015
