DEAR FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS, NEW-COMERS & LONG-TIMERS
Our RIJC family here on Roosevelt Island, as well as our friends & family nearby and overseas, continue to closely monitor the daily events in Israel as well as here in NYC, Washington, & in many other places. We continue to support our folks with families & friends serving & working in Israel, as well as those working here on relief & help wherever needed.
We appreciate all of you who’ve been attending services with Rabbi Gold, & look forward to your continued presence through the next months. Please feel free to contact us at any time.
Please see Rabbi Gold’s November 17th special Thanksgiving sermon, posted on the Rabbi’s Message page, a message of hope during these colder, challenging days.
Please join Rabbi Gold as she continues to lead us through these very challenging times for members & friends of the RIJC, with prayers, readings, songs, conversation & support. Please note that our next Shabbat services will be Friday December 8 & Friday December 22. Please go to the Coming Up page to check the just posted January - June 2024 Shabbat schedule.
Please see some new updates on the Coming Up Page. As we move forward, we will be planning our Fall/Winter Adult Learning activities, special family events, and more. Your input is greatly valued & needed. Please let us know what you’d like us to offer or what you’d like to lead with us.
