Fleetwood Synagogue is a small, friendly Modern Orthodox synagogue, led by Rabbi Daniel Rosenfelt, 25 minutes by train to Grand Central.

Fleetwood Synagogue, located in southern Westchester County, is a wonderful and warm congregation:  small and undiscovered.  When you are looking to relocate to a Modern Orthodox suburban setting, we want you to consider Fleetwood as one of your options, and an interest-free forgivable loan program should be an added attraction.

The Fleetwood Synagogue Housing Incentive Program is intended to provide funding to Modern Orthodox families who need assistance moving into our community.  It works very simply.  Upon acceptance into the program (described below). It can be used toward the purchase of your home, home renovations, or for your children’s education.  It’s yours.  In exchange for the money, you agree to be dues-paying actively involved members of the synagogue, and remain living in the community for ten years.  After ten years, you’re done – no need to repay a penny.  If you are unable to fulfill your commitment, you will be obligated to repay the loan.  The loan will be secured, just as a mortgage is.

To qualify for the program, a family must be accepted for membership in the synagogue.

You will be invited to spend a Shabbat in the community.   You will meet with a subset of the Membership Committee to answer your questions.

Upon successful completion of the membership application process, you will need to complete the loan application.  Your application and all related materials will be held in the strictest of confidence, and will be reviewed by a small committee.
