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

Sho-Far, So-Good!
Monday, August 21
8:00pm
Have you always wanted to learn how to blow the shofar, but are too nervous to try?  Join Rabbi Schlosberg and Gordon Remer, our shofar blower, to learn - no experience necessary!  Rabbi Schlosberg will teach about the laws and spirituality of shofar blowing, and we will also practice the various types of shofar blasts.  We will provide the shofarot, but if you happen to own one, please bring it.  We are hoping to recruit a couple more shofar blowers to perform this mitzvah during the High Holidays, but no pressure!
