RIJHA News & Events

The RIJHA Membership Committee is currently working on a community project titled “Rhode Island Jewish Community COVID-19 Memory Book”. The goal of this project is to get firsthand accounts from the Rhode Island Jewish community as to what life was like during the pandemic over the past 18+ months. We want to know what it was like for you to experience Shabbat, the High Holy Days, Seders, and lifecycle events through the lens of COVID-19. The letter we sent out to members is available below. We hope you will send in your reflection!
