Our Service

At the Flemington Jewish Community Center (FJCC), we don’t just “do Judaism at you.” Instead, we encourage participation by congregants in our services. Adults and teenagers frequently play these roles in the service:

∙ Lifting or tying the Torah scroll

∙ Taking an aliyah at the Torah reading

∙ Leading the Kiddush blessings

∙ Leading part of the service

∙ Reading from the Torah

∙ Chanting the haftarah

∙ Giving a d'var Torah (a talk related to the weekly portion)

∙ Commenting in response to the d'var Torah or the rabbi’s sermon

Children are encouraged to lead selected parts of the Friday evening service and the closing parts of the Saturday morning service.

The FJCC is an egalitarian, Conservative congregation. We currently use the Sim Shalom siddur and Etz Hayim text of Torah readings. For help with the Hebrew parts of the service, transliterations are available, and all Hebrew texts come with line-by-line translations. No knowledge of Hebrew is required for you to participate in the discussion of the Torah portion. Our rabbi and ritual committee are eager to help you learn how to play whatever active role interests you.
