Welcome from the President

Hello and Shalom!

I am Robert “Rob” Chananie, the president of the Jewish Community Center of Paramus/Congregation Beth Tikvah. I succeed Wayne Zeiler, who just finished his third term with a bonus year… and what a year it has been!

Beth, my wife of 44 years, and I moved to Paramus in 1985. Our children attended the nursery and religious schools and we all were lucky to make lifelong friends. We have long considered the JCCP/CBT as our home and the people we have met along the way, our synagogue family. We still treasure those friendships.

The synagogue has been an integral part of the Paramus community for over 60 years.  As a Conservative synagogue, providing dual services (Egalitarian and Traditional), we strive to meet the religious, educational, and social needs of our membership.

Thanks for visiting the newly updated JCCP/CBT website and learning about our synagogue. If you have any questions, feel free to call the shul office, schedule a tour, meet with the rabbi or myself, or join us for Shabbat services.  If you are already a member, I look forward to seeing you soon.  If you are new or a potential member, I welcome the opportunity to get to know you better.

Together with my board members, religious, and lay leaders, I am committed to continuing the traditions set forth before me and expanding on them. I look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you.

Feel free to email or call me –

Rob Chananie, President
