Happy Spring, Everyone.


      We are fortunate that the RIJC has been able to offer, since March 2020, our wide range of Shabbat & other services, celebrations, life-cycle activities, Holidays, learning opportunities and more. An enormous Thank You and our deep appreciation goes to Rabbi Joel, for his unflagging dedication & efforts on our behalf.


      We continue to emerge from our homes thanks to wide-spread testing, vaccinations, taking precautions, reviewing new CDC guidelines and using common sense, not to leave out the power of Zoom. We expect to resume some in-person activities soon, including our annual late-June Shabbat at the Meditation Steps and the High Holidays in early September (very early September).

    Special Thanks to everyone who joined Rabbi Joel and the Melamed & Wagreich families and their friends, in person and on Zoom, this past Saturday, to celebrate Shabbat and Aliza becoming a Bat Mitzvah.  Despite the rain & the cold, it was a warm, wonderful day for all who attended & participated. 


   Our next Shabbat service is Friday June 11th, at a special time; location and Zoom information to be announced.


   Our annual Shabbat at the Meditation Steps will be Friday June 25th; additional details coming soon.
