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. For newcomers, however, entry points into an already established community can be challenging and intimidating.
At HCRJ, we want everyone to feel welcome, connected, and engaged from the moment they step foot into this building. Join us on Friday night as we extend a warm welcome to the newest members of HCRJ at our annual New Member Shabbat.
Our evening will begin with a wine and cheese reception at 6:15 pm followed by Shabbat services at 7:15 pm. During services, we will install our new Board of Trustees, reminding us that leadership and membership go hand in hand.
