WELCOME TO THE 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 EducationEarly 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.

Become a part of your community
