About Roosevelt Island Jewish Congregation
The Roosevelt Island Jewish Congregation (RIJC) is a small, egalitarian, progressive and friendly synagogue founded in 1976. We are dedicated to providing strong Jewish spiritual leadership and support, plus renewed and increased Jewish knowledge to all who seek it, as well as a strong Jewish community in and for Roosevelt Island. Our members and friends are both long-timers and newcomers to RI, are both young families and retirees, singles & couples, and many more who are still working on and off the Island. We have a small Sanctuary in our Island's Cultural Center, where we conduct our services, events and the High Holy Days.
We are always seeking to increase our membership, and engage more Jewish Islanders in our Congregation through our Shabbat services, holiday & festival events, child & adult learning and through service to the community.
