Jersey City Community Carries on with Faith, Resiliency


The Jewish community in Greenville, NJ, was established a few years ago by a few brave families who were looking for one thing, a place they can call home without going into debt.

To establish a new Jewish community was going to be tough, but for those willing to sacrifice and take the first step, the future looked bright. Hard work, sweat, and toil were necessary from day one, but thank god in a short while we were able to see positive results. Nowadays, Greenville is a strong community and growing at a steady rate.

The tragedy which took place last month when two dear souls were so brutally ripped away from this world has left our community reeling. Although it is an occurrence that could have happened anywhere, for us, it had terrible consequences. The future of the community has taken an enormous hit. The damage and trauma which resulted from that heinous act have affected young and old.

Now we face another uphill battle to try to re-establish peace and harmony in our beloved city. How can we let the sacrifice of our brethren go to waste? The only choice for us is to regroup and come back stronger than before.

We have undertaken the building of a new community center that will house the Shul, Mikvah, and Talmud Torah. Such a move will show the world, and more importantly, the members of our community that we are here to stay, and we will continue building.

The future of a Jewish community is at a crossroads, and it is in your hands to ensure our success.

Please open your hearts and take a generous part in the emergency campaign to raise $1,000,000.00 so that we continue building our future.

Your support will ensure the continuance of a vibrant Jewish community.
