Welcome to the RIJC, a significant part of the Roosevelt Island community for nearly 40 years. We are delighted to welcome you back, or invite you for the first time, to join us for the High Holidays and become a member or supporter. We are an active, liberal, egalitarian congregation that strives to engage, include, and support the Jewish community on Roosevelt Island. We are dedicated to increasing meaningful and spiritually engaging participation in all that we do.
We remain committed to offering synagogue membership to all, regardless of financial circumstances. It is crucial to understand that membership income at the suggested rates and donations cover only 80% of our actual costs. With this shortfall in mind, we ask you to please consider significantly increasing your contribution; this increase will allow others to be part of our community and help cover our costs.
We are delighted that so many have enjoyed our Shabbat services and onegs, family dinners, holiday observances, celebrations, and adult education classes. We must be able to cover the expenditures for these events, as well as the costs to engage our wonderful Rabbi, maintain an appropriate space for services, provide education, and include a cantorial presence for the High Holidays.
If the RIJC has been the place you’ve turned to as your Island Jewish resource, please generously reflect this in your contribution. You may also want to consider sponsoring a particular event or aesthetic improvement in our rebuilt home. Nina Lublin, our president, or Steve Kaufman, our treasurer, would be happy to arrange this with you. With your generous help, the RIJC will be able to continue to provide a broad range of services and activities to the Roosevelt Island Jewish community.

Families @ $800
