As we continue to monitor the rapidly evolving situation with the COVID-19/Coronavirus in the United States, we have made some difficult decisions regarding the current operations of the Pine Brook Jewish Center. The executive leadership of the synagogue, along with the clergy and lay leadership have been meeting to determine a plan of action that makes the most sense for our community. We are also heeding the recommendations set forth by both the Jewish Federation and the Rabbinical Council. Effective immediately, please note the following:

  • Friday evening, Saturday morning, and Sunday Minyan services are canceled until further notice.
  • The PBJC Office will remain open in a limited, remote capacity. We ask congregants to call or email to reach the office rather than stopping in. Registrations, payments, etc. can be made online or mailed to the office. Office staff will be checking voice mail and email regularly. Should you require immediate assistance, please make note of the following cell phone numbers:

            Rabbi Finkel (973) 407-0065
            Cantor Toren (973) 980-7777
            Michelle Zuckerman (973) 886-5456
            Barry Marks (201) 400-2370


  • All activities and events through the end of March are canceled.
  • The PBJC Religious School will be closed effective immediately. Mary Sheydwasser and Robin Mangino have sent out more detailed communication regarding this to all Religious School families.
  • The PBJC Nursery School and Giggle Zone will be closed beginning Monday, March 16. Lisa Lerman and Jill Buckler have sent out more detailed communication regarding this to all Nursery School and Giggle Zone families.

    We will continue to assess the situation and keep you updated frequently. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time for all of us. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.

Welcome to the Pine Brook Jewish Center!

We affirm that everyone is a stakeholder and community matters.
We nourish our deep roots. We learn and we grow.
We value diversity. We are young and young at heart.
