Welcome to the online home of Jewish Family Congregation—a unique and vital center of Jewish life in Northern Westchester County. Small and energetic, welcoming, progressive, and egalitarian, JFC is distinctive for being warm, embracing and intimate. With our innovative, creative and friendly Rabbi, Marcus Burstein, our remarkably talented Cantor, Kerry Ben David, our award-winning educators and our magnificent choir, JFC is the place where a remarkably diverse congregation of families and singles—young and more mature—worship with energy, joy, reverence and beautiful music; explore and deepen their Jewish identities; share the happiest and most meaningful times in their lives; support one another in times of sadness and challenge; and grow and learn as Jews, residents of Westchester and citizens of the global community.
Please take the time to explore our website and to get an inkling, if only virtually, of what makes JFC so special. If you're intrigued and want to learn more, please accept our invitation to get to know us in person by being our guest for Shabbat services some Friday evening or Saturday morning, by sitting in on a torah study class, by attending one of our many special programs, by checking out our JFC history project, all of which you can explore preliminarily on our website. Or feel free to call one of us to chat or drop by to meet our Rabbi, our Cantor and our teachers.
One way or another, on-line or in person, spend some time with us and see why we're all so proud to call JFC our home.
Glenn Kurlander and Hal Wolkin, co-Presidents
