Glen Rock Jewish Center
Shalom! The GRJC is a welcoming, vibrant and diverse congregation, with a strong commitment to purposeful Jewish living.
Our egalitarian Conservative congregational family strives to make the beauty and spirit of our Jewish tradition come alive for all of our members. As a congregation, we embrace each individual and each family. And, as a community, we are on an exciting journey of Jewish growth, exploration, and discovery.
We welcome all Jewish people and families, including spouses of other faiths, regardless of gender and orientation, as the prophet Isaiah taught, 'this house is a house of prayer for all people.'
Our synagogue blends the teachings of our Jewish heritage with the best lessons of modern culture. We are proud of our enlightening services, our commitment to social action, and our emphasis on Jewish education for people of all ages. Our Adult Education, Early Childhood Programs, and Hebrew School are flourishing.
The great Rabbi Hillel taught: "Become a part of your community" (Pirke Avot 2:5). It is our hope that you will become part of our community, and that we may all grow together.

Saturday Morning Torah Study
We are pleased to offer a lively short-and-sweet adult Torah study discussion with Rabbi Schlosberg as part of Shabbat morning services on weeks when we do not have a bar/bat mitzvah celebration. We typically begin this Torah study around between 10:30 am and 10:45 am. Stay for Kiddush and schmooze with others. We welcome you even if you only want to come for the discussion!
Free High Holiday Tickets!
The High Holidays represent a special time to connect with the Jewish community. Through the EZ Key program, synagogues in the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey catchment area are saying “Welcome” to new members of the community (who have lived in Bergen County/ Passaic County/ Hudson County for two years or less) by offering High Holiday tickets. Don’t miss hearing the Shofar this year. Tickets are available for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, including Kol Nidre and Yizkor. Want more information? Please contact Nancy Perlman via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 201-820-3904.
