 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).


      So please join us for a special Saturday Shabbat, May 29th at 11:00 am, and join

 us via Zoom for Shavuot on this Sunday, May 16.  Updated details & Zoom links for Shavuot have already been sent and are posted on the Coming Up page;  May 29th and June Shabbat details are coming soon.
