Benefits Morristown Jewish Center Beit Yisrael
Draws on 03/09/09
Morristown Jewish Center Beit Yisrael is a Conservative Congregation with a rich history of more than 100 years, and a bright and energetic future. Located in the heart of Historic Morristown, MJCBY is traditional in style and egalitarian in participation. We are an exciting and engaged community that seeks to instill the joy and love of Judaism in all that we do.
We are committed to serving the needs of all of our members, young and old, and we do so with enthusiasm. Morristown Jewish Center Beit Yisrael has a rich and vibrant history of more that 100 years. Incorporated as the House of Israel on January 5, 1899, our first meeting place was at 4 Race Street. With the growth of the community, our present site was purchased on May 7, 1918 from the estate of Heyward G. Hemmel.
Rabbi Signer, our first spiritual leader, was hired in 1921 on a part-time basis. He later became our full-time Rabbi, and served until his retirement in 1924. With dramatic growth of our congregation so came the need for a larger building. The cornerstone of our current building was laid on March 3, 1929.
The grand prize is a fully loaded 2009 Toyota Prius with free oil changes for the life of the car at Toyota of Morristown! The second prize is a monster 52″ Plasma HDTV! Not too shabby!
