So, nu? What is HudsonJewish?
HudsonJewish connects our community. We're a group of people from every part of the Jewish spectrum who are reviving a diverse and vibrant Jewish community throughout the Greater Hudson County area. Participants are Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, observant, non-observant, formerly-observant, increasingly-observant, American, Israeli and none-of-the-above. We are singles, couples, families and "empty nesters." Some of us have lived here all our lives, others are newcomers drawn by the neighborhoods, transport links, and other amenities that Hudson County offers.
Our message to you is simple: Whatever your own Jewish background or interests may be, there is a place for you in our community. This website is designed to help you find it. (We're constantly adding to it, so if there's something else you'd like to see, let us know)!
The best way to meet our friendly people is to come to community events. We sponsor Shabbat dinners and informal gatherings, and we post local organizations' events so that everyone can know what's going on. When you visit a synagogue for the first time, make sure to ask the rabbi or congregation to direct you to a HudsonJewish volunteer, who can tell you about the community!
The Hudson Jewish Community Forum meets occasoinally at different locations in Hudson County. The Forum is a great place to share ideas, network, learn who else has moved to town and generally find out what's up.
Our mailing address is: P.O. Box 225, Jersey City, NJ 07303.
You can learn more about our all-volunteer effort by reading the attached PDF: HudsonJewish - Connecting Our Community.
