New City Jewish Center (NCJC) is a dynamic hub of Jewish activity and leadership. We are a warm and welcoming community to all who seek to bring the richness and beauty of Judaism into your life and home. 

NCJC is a place for friends and community to gather. We’re proud to have twice daily minyan, engage in social action projects, promote a love of Israel, and grow through an array of educational opportunities. With weekly Adult Education classes, active Men’s Club and Sisterhood, a thriving Kadima/USY Youth Community and The Learning Collaborative, we have something for everyone! 

This year we are excited to continue with our innovative educational programs for children, from toddlers through teens, in collaboration with our friends at Temple Beth Sholom and housed at NCJC. 

Shalom Rockland ECC, focuses on the whole child, with instruction to suit individual learning styles while incorporating Jewish values, Shalom Rockland ECC provides a safe haven for children to grow cognitively, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. We offer flexible and extended hours, Universal Pre-K (UPK), indoor and outdoor play spaces, and outstanding staff and curriculum.    

BeYachad is a spirited, engaging, and creative K-12 learning program.  In BeYachad, learning is unconventional and effective, thoughtfully designed with creative hands-on activities to inspire learning through community participation. BeYachad is not the religious school of the past; it is the future! 

We love to share our passion for Judaism, its customs and traditions. Our congregational practice is guided by the Conservative tradition and our institutional heart is guided by the values of kindness and compassion, chesed and rachamim. Welcome to the NCJC family!
