COVID Information

Our building may be closed, but we are very much open and serving you. Whether it’s online services, classes or special programming we have come together as a congregational family now more than ever. Try a Committee, socialize with friends online, or learn something new. You are not alone. We are here for you. Below, please see some helpful information and changes.

Service Information

Our services have had record attendance as our members gather together online from all over the country to hear the inspiring and uplifting words of Rabbi Sharff or to be able to hear and be moved by Cantor Neff’s incredible singing. Services are held on Friday evenings via Zoom. You can log in via your home computer, smartphone, or simply dial in and listen. Log in information is available through our membership weekly emails. When we’re open our services are welcome to all, even though we’re online, you can still join our services. Please send a request to our office at info@rtrny.org to experience Joyful Judaism.
