Ethical Will Writing Workshop
Thursday, December 9
7:30-9:00pm
Our Jewish tradition also teaches us that this is a moment to document an enduring written legacy for your family.  The creation of an ethical will, a document sharing your stories, values and hopes for your family, can be meaningful for both the writer and those reading it after you pass.  Rabbi Schlosberg will lead us in a discussion on how to write an ethical will for your family. With the support of the community on Zoom, but in the privacy of your own home, we will begin drafting some preliminary thoughts for our loved ones. Be prepared with either a pen/paper or the ability to easily type your thoughts. Your loved ones will be grateful you attended.  Register HERE to receive the Zoom link.

Welcoming the Stranger: GRJC's Efforts to Support Refugees
 
The GRJC is proud to be a Welcome Campaign Congregation through HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society). As part of this partnership, we seek to find ways of fulfilling the mitzvah of "welcoming the stranger" by supporting refugees and asylum seekers in pursuit of a dream for a better life. Please take part in one or more of the following efforts.
 
Sign GRJC's Refugee Support Letter
Please click HERE to sign a letter asking our members of Congress to uphold the rights and safety of refugees and asylum seekers. (Select GRJC from the dropdown menu.)  Once all signatures are collected, our congregation will deliver the letter and request a meeting to discuss the importance of welcoming refugees to our community.

Glen Rock Is Never Surrendering (GRINS)
The group "Glen Rock is Never Surrendering" (GRINS)  was created to support Bergen County hospitals during the COVID-19 crisis. The primary goal is to deliver meals daily to hospitals, working with local restaurants.  GRINS has been collecting money from people in town and using it to buy the meals, supporting both local eateries and healthcare workers.  Employees at HUMC lost their cafeteria to make room for more beds for COVID-19 patients. If you would like to participate, please check out the group's Facebook page for contacts and information.  THANK YOU!
