"I always imagined synagogues in past ages being places of passtionate and intense learning and debate throughout the lifecycle. At Shomrei Torah my wife Diana and I have found a synagogue that continues in this tradition which has stimulated our continued growth in Judaism." - Dr. Phillip Shore, STS Member
