Ciao! Notes from the Rabbi...


Order and harmony are the basis of beauty.  On Tuesday September 13, a
small and efficient Library Committee started to reorganize our FJCC
library.   The purpose of the committee is to arrange the books and make
them accessible to congregation and the community at large. It is a mitzvah
and it is fun.  WIth your help, our library and our beautiful building will be
an organized and vibrant community center.

Next meeting Tuesday November 1 at 3:30 pm

If you are interested, please contact the rabbi at rabbi@flemingtonjcc.org
or call 908.782.6410 ext 12

Learning Shabbat Services Does Not End at the Bat/Bar Mitzvah Party

Learn to lead Shabbat Services and more at your own pace.  

We have available recording of Ma'ariv service by our own Julia Sirota:

You may find other recordings of Shabbat Services.  I suggest
Rabbi Zimmerman's online recording:

To learn the parashah/torah reading and chanting the haftarah, I suggest
the following free apps :

tropes: Tropes Lite
for torah readings/leining: Pocket Torah
for chanting the haftarah: Pocket Haftarah

These recordings do not substitute Hebrew School or our tutoring
progam.  They are intended to supplement and help your at-home review
