Shabbat services are held every Saturday beginning at 9:45 am in our home located on the upstairs level of 60 Valley Street in South Orange, NJ. Entry is from the back with access either from Valley Street or from First Street, midway between Valley Street and Academy Street. Handicapped parking is available and the space is handicapped accessible. The service is traditional/egalitarian and all parts, including the Torah reading, are led by members of the congregation.
We welcome people of all backgrounds and ages, and encourage our children and youth to participate in the services. Following services we enjoy a dairy and pareve potluck kiddush with wine, challah, and other refreshments.
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services will be held in the South Mountain Elementary School located at 444 W. South Orange Avenue in South Orange.
Anyone looking for a place of worship for the High Holy Days is welcome to attend. A minimum donation of $54 per person to help cover our expenses is requested; however, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. There is no charge for students. Once again this year, High Holy Day services will be led by our wonderful cantorial soloist Eliana Kissner and other members of our community.
We hope to see you with us this year!

Who We Are
Kol Rina is an independent traditional/egalitarian Jewish community. This means that while for the most part we follow a Conservative/egalitarian service, we are not affiliated with any movement. Our services on Shabbat, holidays and other occasions are conducted entirely by our members. CLICK here to read more about our unique community.
