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.

Summer Services

We expect to offer these RIJC activities during July & August: 

** July 17 - Havdalah, with Tisha B’av

**  August 28 - Havdalah, with Selichot - our High Holy Day “prep”.

Please stay tuned for specifics, Zoom details and possible in-person activities.     

 

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. 

 

Additional dates and times to be announced...keep checking back

HIGH HOLY DAYS:

    It’s hard to believe the first night of Rosh Hashanah is Monday, September 6th - Labor Day.  We have begun the planning process to have services both in our Sanctuary in the Cultural Center and via Zoom.  Rabbi Joel has more than mastered the fine points of leading our HHDs in person, since 2018, and on Zoom last Fall, so we know we are in good hands, and that we can count on you to make the start of 5782 a great success.

  We will start sending out information and details in about two weeks, so please

keep an eye on your email and hard mail for updates.
