Religious Services 2020

The Forest Hills Jewish Center is happy to announce that it is going to resume in-person religious services on a limited, trial basis starting on Sunday, July 12. Although our online programs have been very successful, we can all agree that nothing compares to being in shul together. 

In this initial stage, services will be limited to Sunday morning July 12, Tuesday evening July 14, Thursday evening July 16, and Shabbat July 25. Assuming that all goes well, services will continue thereafter on Sunday morning and Tuesday and Thursday evening, and also Shabbat mornings. Daily minyan times will be the same as before- Sunday morning at 8:20 AM and evening minyan at 7:30 PM. Shabbat services will start at 9:30 AM. 

These services will be available on the FHJC Zoom link. Zoom programming will continue when in person services are not scheduled. – evening Limmud, Kabbalat Shabbat, Shabbat, and Havdalah services.
