NE NY & N New England Community
Part of the Eastern Communities

Serving Congregations in Upstate and Hdsn Vly NY, No. New England

WELCOME to the Northeastern New York/ Northern New England URJ Community!!!

Our Community and 38 others across North America were created 3 years ago to help lay leaders within a geographic area work collaboratively to share resources, ideas and best principles.  During this time we have had webinars and a few opportunities for in-person meetings including one with URJ President Rick Jacobs and another at Crane Lake Camp.

However, we have learned that our significant geographic spread makes it understandably difficult for many of us to come together in one central location.  Working with our staff partner, Alex Gilbert, our goal is to try to bridge this geographic divide and benefit from each other’s experience and knowledge and to maximize awareness of and access to URJ services helping all of us to strengthen our individual congregations.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions.  We look forward to working with you!!

Warm regards,

Jill Goodman, Congregation Beth Emeth, Albany, NY, Community co-chair
