Community Pesach Video
For Pesach this year, we wanted to do something special
to wish the RJC community a Chag Sameach.

We'd like anyone who wants to participate to send a short video of you, alone or with your family, wishing everyone a Chag Sameach in a fun, creative way. You can make a sign, something out of legos, do a little dance, or anything you can think of. We'll compile all of the video clips together and send out the full video on Erev Pesach. 

by members of Ma'ayanot.

The deadline for video submissions is Sunday night, April 5. 
Click here to upload your video. 



As Pesach approaches, we want to make sure that everyone’s shopping and/or catering needs and virtual connection needs are met, while we engage in social distancing and protect those in high risk categories. We are looking to match volunteers with those who need some assistance.

Please fill out the following form by clicking here if you fit one of the following categories:

  • High risk, cannot leave your home, and/or would benefit from Pesach prep assistance
  • Feeling well, not in a high-risk group, and can volunteer to help someone in need

All Submissions Will Be Kept Confidential 


Dear Friends,

Social distancing during the Coronavirus challenges us to think creatively about how we can daven, learn, grow, and stay connected as a community during these unique times.

The RJC will offer a full array of classes and programs to engage our members and friends in the weeks ahead. Please join us for prayers, learning programs, chessed initiatives to assist the elderly, and much more. Join us often from wherever you are and help us keep our community vibrant and strong.

Keep an eye on your email for continuing updates and you can always check out our website for all of our offerings. Remember, our building is closed, but our community never closes.
