Wishing everyone a very healthy, safe and happy 2021.

The RIJC continues to serve the community, via Zoom, as we have regularly since March 20, 2020. 

We continue to offer services, celebrate holidays, observe life-cycle events and more, virtually via Zoom, as we start 2021, hopeful for good health, vaccines and the eventual return to in-person activities later this year...

Until then, please join us for any or all of the activities scheduled below. 

Please check your email or this site for further information.

Our very own Rabbi Sebert is the editor of a version of the Sim Shalom Siddur that includes a full transliteration - for Friday night services.  Please feel free to use this siddur for this and every Friday night service, by clicking the link below.

It also contains the weekday (afternoon) service, which includes the full weekday Amidah (Shemonah Esrei), so it’s quite useful for daily services too.  (Unfortunately, the full Sim Shalom siddur is not available with transliteration.)

Havdalah:  Saturday Evenings  

We celebrate the end of Shabbat with a little study & conversation, prayers and, when we have a minyan, say Kaddish. 

April 17 @ 8:15
