Judaism is a faith structured around relationships, and the synagogue is one of the most common places where those relationships are formed and nurtured. These relationships are established as we learn each other’s stories and meet each other’s families. With time, these ever expanding relationships develop into a warm and welcoming community.
For newcomers, however, entry ways into an already established community can be challenging and intimidating. This is something that HCRJ tries hard to overcome. We want everyone to feel welcome, connected and engaged from the moment they step foot into this building.
This Friday night before worship services (weather permitting), help us extend a warm welcome to our newest members and join us in reaching out to potential members at our annual Welcome Shabbat.
Our evening begins with wine and cheese at 6:15. Bring someone who is searching for a synagogue home or extend a personal invitation to someone who has recently joined our congregation. Your help is needed as we wish make HCRJ the friendliest synagogue in town.
