Joel Shaiman, Rabbi -- Nina Lublin, President --  Steve Kaufman, Treasurer -- Contact Information

We joyously gather to pray together in the RIJC Sanctuary, transmitting our love of Judaism throughout our congregation. People of all ages are welcome to join our children and family oriented Shabbat celebration.

Services are throughout the year on Friday nights and once a month we hold Family Services.  Rabbi Shaiman joins us and inspires us with new insights and beautiful melodies.  Service start times vary throughout the year, giving everyone a chance to join us when the time if right for you.  And we have added more services geared toward families and young children, please see the schedule for more information.

Services are followed by an Oneg Shabbat, (kosher--dairy or pareve). All events and service information is updated on our site and emailed to our contact list.  To be on our list or for any other information, please contact us or feel free to worship with us.
