Open Facility

img_3274By the grace of God, our vision of creating a new center for our beloved Syriac children in this blessed archdiocese was realized in 2007, when His Holiness Mor Ignatius Aphrem II and archdiocese board members finalized the purchase of the property at 55 W Midland Avenue in the heart of our Syriac community in North New Jersey. Since then, our faithful people have worked tirelessly to make this dream a reality. On May 10, 2015, His Holiness consecrated the chapel and inaugurated Mor Aphrem Center. We encourage you all to visit Mor Aphrem Center to receive the fruits of your hard work.

The facilities are open and ready to receive you! The Center offers you the following services:

  • Bible studies in English and Arabic for youth and adults;
  • Morning and evening prayers during the week;
  • Liturgy every Friday;
  • Personal spiritual guidance;
  • Youth activities, including spiritual education and social gatherings;
  • Retreat facilities;
  • Bedrooms for short or long stay;
  • Formal hall for spiritual or cultural activities; and
  • Meeting rooms

Mor Aphrem Center will be our source of education for the next generation of church leaders, deaconesses, deacons, and priests for the glory of God and the prosperity of His Holy Syriac Orthodox Church.

For further information or to make reservations please send an e-mail to  or call (201) 370-7272.
