Tour Our Beautiful Building

In 2008, we built a highly acclaimed green building, the first platinum LEED-certified synagogue in North America. Since then it has been home to hundreds of simchas, rituals, classes, tikkun olam events, educational programs, large community gatherings and small (yet just as important) hallway conversations. We look forward to the time when our walls will once again be filled with the bustling energy of JRC activity. In the meantime, as we follow our deeply held values of kehillah (community), pikuach nefesh (saving lives, caring for the elderly, infirm and at-risk), and tzorchei tzibur (caring for the needs of the community), we continue to thrive as a community. We would love for you to visit and see our stunning facility once it is safe to do so. To schedule a tour, email the JRC office at
