Also, the Roosevelt Island Jewish Congregation (RIJC);
... invites you to join Rabbi Moritt for our Fall Adult Education Class:

Exploring the Women of the Bible

Thursdays, December 4, 11, & 18 7:30 pm

At first glance, the women of the Bible appear to take a back seat to the better-known male characters.

Join Rabbi M as we explore both the better- and lesser-known women of the Bible, and how they are key to the history and transmission of Judaism through biblical and Midrashic legend.

Our Shabbat service on 12/12 @ 7:30 pm, and our annual Chanukah Candle Lighting & Party on 12/21 @ 4 pm.
More information available at the RIJC web site.

And the Chabad Lubavitch Of Roosevelt Island have their annual Chanukah Menorah Lighting Ceremony at Blackwell House 6:30 PM on December 20.

There's also the Islamic Society Of Roosevelt Island (Don't have a web site for them). Meet some of their members at this prior post.
