Pfeffer’s family has a long history in the Township. His father, a noted attorney who passed away last year, represented many shuls and mosdos over the years, and is best remembered for his work to defend the zoning approval for Zichron Schneur. He also was a founder of Bais Nosson Tzvi on Willow Court. His brother, Adam, has served as the lawyer for the Lakewood MUA.
