"You can mark one of the most important days of the Jewish calendar and continue to celebrate the High Holidays with your family, friends and neighbors at the Roosevelt Island Jewish Congregation’s Yom Kippur services," according to RIJC President Nina Lublin.

Lublin's message continues:

At the RIJC, the oldest and longest-serving Jewish congregation on the Island, you will find members of all generations worshipping as a progressive, egalitarian and friendly community. Our spiritual leader, Rabbi Leana Moritt, has established a special warmth and, after 10 years here, knows every member and their family.

Yom Kippur Morning services will be held on Saturday, September 30 at 9:00 am.

Child care is available for children ages two to ten Friday evening and during the Saturday morning and afternoon services.

There will be a children’s service in the Theatre on Saturday, September 30 at 11:00 am.
