To comply with current urgent “physical distancing” instructions, our building
has temporarily closed for our normal activities and services

Rest assured, however, the CAI community does NOT close down.
We are in frequent communication [electronically], caring for those in need, educating children, teens, and adults
via video, clergy officiating at urgent life cycle moments, as well as guidance via the internet.

Caring Committee

Our Caring Committee, in conjunction with our CAI Board, are seeking to become aware of needs, and to engage as many CAI volunteers as possible in conducting acts of Hesed [lovingkindness] to meet those needs. If you are in need of assistance or would like to provide assistance, please let us know by e-mailing, or call (973) 226-3600 ext. 142, and someone will reach out to you as soon as possible. Your patience is appreciated.

The Biblical injunction is that "no leaven shall be
seen or found in your possession during Passover."

IN ORDER NOT to be compelled to dispose of all leaven products, we have legal provisions for the sale of all of our hametz. We invite every member of the congregation to appoint Rabbi Silverstein to represent them for this transaction. The Rabbi will then "sell" everyone's hametz to a non-Jew for the duration of Passover. After the holiday, the Rabbi will symbolically buy it back.

Because of the requirement of disposing of all hametz by Wednesday, Apr. 8, at 9 am, the ritual transaction on the part of the individual must be completed at that time.
