My Jewish Story












Every one of us has a Jewish story and we almost never get to tell it.

During this pandemic, as we build our community in new and creative ways, this is a good opportunity to tell your Jewish story. We will use the medium of either a recorded Zoom call or a podcast, depending on your preference.

If you want to share your story, give Rabbi Cy a call at 732-768-7773 and he will set up a time and date for the zoom or phone call.
