ROOSEVELT ISLAND JEWISH CONGREGATION

Laurie Gold, Rabbi.          Nina Lublin, President.   

DEAR FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS, NEW-COMERS & LONG-TIMERS

Spring is certainly here on Roosevelt Island, with Summer on the way.  Our Island looks particularly wonderful with our trees and green spaces totally in bloom, plants and flowers in many places.  Lots of Islanders  of all ages & abilities out and about...

We are happy to see you in many places and hope to see more of you at the RIJC.

.

While we are relieved that much of the confrontations on local and national college campuses has declined or ended, we continue to closely monitor events here in NYC, around the United States & in Israel.  There is no decrease in Antisemitism — just an increase in how to combat it.  We also continue to wish those of you who are traveling Safe & Easy Travels over the next few weeks and months.

SHABBAT SHALOM 

Our NEXT Shabbat Service is at 7:00 pm Friday, June 7th, in our Sanctuary.  It will be followed by a special Oneg in honor of Dalia Levanon’s High School Graduation, hosted by her family.  Details & Location to be announced.

 

LAG BA'OMER

This Sunday is Lag Ba'Omer and Chabad’s  Annual Lag Ba'Omer Bonfire Celebration!!  

The RIJC is delighted to “co-sponsor“ this event.

Please join us, this Sunday May 26, 6:00-8:00pm, in the field behind Blackwell House for BBQ-style dinner, activities and, of course, a bonfire with yummy dessert!   

Looking forward to an amazing evening!
