Welcome to the Jewish Home of Raritan Valley

The communities of East Brunswick, Edison & Highland Park

we’re here for you

We’re a community-wide organization dedicated to enhancing the welfare and wellbeing of local families, institutions and businesses in the present, while cultivating our region to significantly increase the Jewish population in the future.


Helping grow. Communal growth is an integral part in the community’s longevity. With a focus on attracting targeted demographics, our community can succeed long term, grow, and thrive. Our goal is to market the affordability of our towns and recruit young growing families appropriately and effectively to our neighborhoods. This in turn will help populate our schools and shuls and help support our local businesses.


Liaising with our local governments. Our voice needs to be heard in unison by our municipal and County governments as well as local School Boards to impact our community’s experiences as taxpayers. We seek to build that sense of connection, building a pipeline of direct contact with key decision makers. Whether it is an issue with safety for our families in our Schools and Synagogues, pedestrian safety on our local roads, special needs assistance for our most vulnerable children, unemployment assistance; or issues pertaining to our senior citizens, it will be our voice that is heard.


Putting UNITY back into our CommUNITY. Men, women, boys, girls, coming together under one cause. Regardless of where you daven, where your children go to school, or your favorite flavor of ice cream, The ROC of New Jersey seeks to unite our community to the benefit of us all!
