  • Services are in-person, either indoors or outdoors in warmer weather (weather permitting ) and on Zoom. 
  • Torah study (Thursdays) is in-person and on Zoom. For more information, contact Rabbi Janine at rabbijanine@gmail.com.
  • Bagel U classes (adult education) are mostly via Zoom. 

Welcome Rabbi Janine Jankovitz!

 We are delighted to welcome Rabbi Janine Jankovitz as our new rabbi as of July 1, 2024.

Rabbi Janine brings exceptional strengths to our Little Shul by the River.  Her warmth and intelligence, her ability to engage with people of all ages and backgrounds, and her deep connection to Judaism and Torah make her the perfect fit for Kehilat HaNahar. She is excited to bring her past experience building a strong educational program for children to KHN. Of equal importance, Rabbi Janine is committed to our tradition of providing a welcoming, diverse, innovative and vibrant Reconstructionist community in New Hope, Lambertville, and beyond.

Rabbi Janine is very much looking forward to meeting everyone who is part of our wonderful shul and reaching out to the broader community. Having served as a rabbinic intern for KHN, she already feels a deep connection to the Little Shul.

Rabbi Janine was ordained by the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in 2020. From July 2020 to May 2024, she served as the rabbi for Congregation Beth El-Ner Tamid in Broomall, PA. She is a graduate of Temple University and worked for over a decade both as a student rabbi and an education director. With her husband Steven and their young daughter Evelyn, they are settling down in Doylestown Township with their Fitz, their elderly chihuahua, and getting to know Bucks County.

A formal celebration is planned for September 22nd to welcome Rabbi Janine. In the meantime, please join us for Friday night services this summer to meet Rabbi Janine.
