Our Congregation

Our Congregation

LJG Rotterdam is a reform/liberal Jewish congregation, or kehilla.  We respect Jewish traditions in a manner that has been adapted to current times and  we strive for a lively and active kehilla.  Everyone makes personal choices about how to apply the Jewish traditions in daily life. 

The members of our congregation are Jews of all ages, with diverse backgrounds and who come to us from all over the world. We make every effort to help new members integrate easily into our warm community. 

Religious services are held regularly in the community.  In addition, we have youth and adult education programs and there is a small library.  Social events include a book club and movie nights.  JMW (Jewish social services) holds regular coffee mornings in our venue. 

We are involved in care for the elderly for persons with a Jewish background.  In the event of a death the community can play a supportive role with a Jewish funeral. 

Our congregation is a member of the Union for Progressive Judaism in The Netherlands (NVPJ). This is the umbrella organization of the nine progressive congregations in The Netherlands.  Nine rabbis are active within the union and they also  serve as army and prison chaplains.  The union is affiliated with the World Union for Progressive Judaism.
