In great company: GJC recognized as one of America’s most vibrant synagogues
The Germantown Jewish Centre was recognized this week by NEWSWEEK magazine as one of America’s “25 Most Vibrant Congregations,” the only synagogue so recognized in Pennsylvania or New Jersey. The honor was based on an assessment of GJC’s community engagement, growth, outreach, diversity of program, innovation, dynamism and rabbinic leadership. Specifically, GJC was cited as “a model for pluralistic and egalitarian worship and community.” Other synagogues and minyanim in the list included B’nai Jeshurun (BJ) and Kehilat Hadar in New York City and Sinai Temple and IKAR in Los Angeles.
