NRJC Project

The purpose of the New Rochelle Jewish Coalition is to foster unity, respect, and understanding within the New Rochelle Jewish Community. The NRJC is committed to providing social and cultural activities of Jewish interest and to promoting Jewish involvement in a variety of local charities. New Rochelle's Jewish Community is a diverse group that represents a broad range of sects within Judaism. The NRJC celebrates the differences between its member groups and seeks to identify common goals which allow participants to work toward improving relations within the Jewish Community as well as with the greater New Rochelle population. In 2010, the NRJC helped to raise nearly $1,000 to benefit New Rochelle HOPE Community Services, a non-profit organization dedicated to feeding the hungry in New Rochelle. Through NRJC sponsorship, local synagogue youth groups joined forces to create artwork that was ultimately donated to local hospitals and nursing homes. Free bus transportation provided by the NRJC to the annual Israel Day Parade attracted 90 marchers in 2010. The NRJC is proud to represent the New Rochelle Jewish Community and is poised to work toward creating an ever stronger tie among the entire Jewish community in New Rochelle.
