About Perrineville Jewish Center

Perrineville Jewish Center (“PJC”) is proud to be a 112-year-old, non-affiliated (conservative leaning) synagogue in Millstone Township, New Jersey.  We are just over an hour from both New York City and Philadelphia.

PJC focuses on creating a warm, family friendly environment where adults and children can learn about their Jewish heritage, faith and values.   We welcome all with open arms — this includes all levels of observance, non-traditional, interfaith families and singles.  Our Friday night services focus on the warmth of Shabbat with both Hebrew and English readings, explanation of prayers and involving our congregation.  We hold weekly Onegs on Friday night that allow members of all generations to gather, socialize and make meaningful friendships with other members as well as Clergy.  We offer a traditional Saturday morning service with a full Torah reading.  Members are honored with Aliyot to the Torah and are privileged to have discussions on the Torah or Haftorah portions, hear engaging sermons, discussions on a variety of topics and partake in our weekly Kiddushes that once again help to foster a sense of community, togetherness and friendship.

We also offer an active social club that holds events for all age groups, community outreach through our Mitzvah Mensches committee that works to bring generations together to put into practice the tenant of Tikkun Olam, Tzedukkah and participating in Mitzvot.

PJC is also home to LEV Academy, our outstanding Jewish Enrichment Program for students in grades K-7.   LEV Academy bridges a centuries old tradition with a modern, engaging and interactive program that brings Judaism to life.  From iPads and Chrome books to enhance lesson plans, to twinning programs with students in Israel;  From Hebrew language to music that connects us to the spirit of Judaism and from speakers to hands-on enrichment, our students are actively engaged in ways that make learning fun and relevant as we seek to nurture the whole child - mind, body and soul.

Our experienced and dedicated team of teachers, lead by our Education Director and clergy bring vibrancy and excitement to each and every class.  The involvement of our Rabbi and Education Director on a weekly basis ensures that all students and their families build relationships throughout the course of their journey and feel supported every step of the way
