About the GRJC

The Glen Rock Jewish Center (GRJC) is the synagogue and Jewish community resource dedicated to preserving egalitarian Conservative Jewish values and providing the best possible lifelong Jewish experiences for individuals and families living in Glen Rock and neighboring communities.

In order to achieve our vision, the GRJC will:

Encourage meaningful connections with God and Jewish living. Through prayer, meditation and reflection, we will connect with the eternal presence of God in our lives. We will help make Jewish living, through the observance of God's mitzvot, relevant to the lives of the Jewish community in the 21st century.

Educate our children and adults to value and be confident in the continuing pursuit of Jewish knowledge as they develop a mastery of the necessary skills.

Create a warm and supportive community in which all members feel that they have a voice and receive due appreciation for the contributions they make.

Nurture and support Jewish leadership among our young people and adults.

Cultivate a meaningful connection with the State of Israel. The synagogue will maintain a close relationship with our Masorti/Conservative congregations in Israel, and will strive to spark interest in learning about and visiting Eretz Yisrael.

Foster a congregational life that demonstrates a healthy balance and exchange between the Rabbi as spiritual leader and the congregation's lay leaders.

Maintain a balanced atmosphere of ritual and prayer that combines comfort, informality and a sense of humor, with respect for the importance and majesty of silence, reflection and Jewish ceremony.

Seek to heal the world through acts of tzedakah/righteousness and justice. Serve the greater good in the community and beyond.

Review our performance in all these areas on a regular basis in order to assure that the congregation is achieving these goals.
