Congregation Poile Zedek is an Orthodox Ashkenazic synagogue located in New Brunswick. In 1995 our beautiful building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. We offer daily morning, Shabbat and holiday services, and are committed to Torah education and community service. Please join us. Poile Zedek is located in the renovated historic Hiram Square district of downtown New Brunswick, in the heart of New Jersey. We are just down the street from the Hyatt Hotel, which is at the corner of Albany Street (Route 27) and Neilson Street, just opposite Johnson and Johnson's international headquarters and only a few blocks from Rutgers University, Robert Wood Johnson Hospital and St. Peter's Medical Center, and the New Brunswick Train Station. We are a short 5 minute walk into Highland Park with its several shuls, mikvos and kosher eateries.

We cordially welcome all Rutgers students to attend our events. Students consistently attend both our morning and Shabbos services and learn with the Rabbi. Many also come for the holiday services and meals provided by the synagogue. We are serviced by the Rutgers bus system and within walking distance from both the College Ave and Cook/Douglass campuses.

The city of New Brunswick is the county seat of Middlesex County, New Jersey. Situated on the banks of the Raritan River in central New Jersey, New Brunswick sits 31 miles southwest of New York City and only 20 miles south of Newark International Airport. Another large city not too far away is Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (about 60 miles to the southwest). The city is serviced by the New Jersey Turnpike (Interstate 95) and U.S. Routes 1, 18 and 27. New Brunswick is the home of Rutgers University, the state university of New Jersey.

First settled by non-natives in the late 1600s, New Brunswick was originally called Prigmore's Swamp and later Inian's Ferry. Its present name was derived from the English royal house of Brunswick. Incorporated as a town in 1736 and chartered as a city in 1784, New Brunswick served as an early hub for Colonial travelers and traders and later became an important center of industry and commerce. Rutgers University, founded in the city in 1766, was the eighth college to be established in the colonies and the only state university to have existed before the Revolutionary War. In 1885, the Johnson brothers located their adhesive tape and gauze business in an old mill in the city, marking the beginnings of Johnson & Johnson, today the world's largest health care products manufacturer and still headquartered in downtown New Brunswick.
