Come Join The Community!

Remember when you and/or your parents felt “ownership” in your synagogue? How many times over the past several years have you thought; “I wish the synagogue had something more to offer me”. Well now it does and all it needs is YOU.

Hewlett-East Rockaway Jewish Centre (HERJC) fosters a warm and inclusive environment, committed to celebrating Jewish life in our community and around the world. We offer a variety of religious, educational, and social programs that appeal to members of all ages. We welcome you to visit our congregation, attend a Shabbat service, and become a part of our Jewish family.

Our Community

Engaged congregants are getting more involved. Each of us wants to do more so we focus a bit more of ourselves and our families toward the HERJC community. Here are examples of some of the amazing membership programs happening now:

Family Friday Nights – With great participation, we have celebrated Shabbat with Simchat Shabbat Musical Services which include a family-oriented service and dinner. The next one is just around the corner, so please plan on attending! Check Hakol or the online weekly, happening@herjc, or call the office for exact dates!

Social Programs – We have a lot of great events planned and are always looking for suggestions and volunteers. Some recent programs have been Vodka & Babkas, Israeli Film Society, Challah Bake, Poker Night, Jewelry Making, and Football Nights.

Lifelong Learning

As a member of HERJC, you are able to enroll your children in our Religious School as well as other educational programs. Our Early Childhood Development Center is open to non-members as well. Adult members are welcome at all of our educational programs.
