RJC Child Protection Policy


The Riverdale Jewish Center (RJC) is a synagogue that holds the safety and well-being of our children as sacred. The RJC Child Protection Policy applies to all members of the congregation and community - including all staff members, congregants, volunteers, and guests. The RJC aims to provide children with a positive and enriching Jewish, educational, religious, social, and cultural environment that promotes their intellectual, moral, and emotional growth. We are deeply committed to safeguarding the young people in our community so they feel and are safe at all times. To that end, we strive for the highest standards towards protecting them from abuse. With that goal in mind, we have created The RJC Child Protection Policy. This policy is meant to be a fluid and an evolving document, periodically reviewed by our Child Protection Committee.
