Welcome! At Judea Reform, you will find the values, traditions, practices, hopes, and inspiration that Reform Jews cherish: life-long learning, tikkun olam, worship, celebration, community, connection to Israel, and meaningful lives.
Our members are families with young children, singles of all ages, founders of our congregation, new arrivals to the area, people who have converted, interfaith families, people from all over the world, and even people who were born and raised right here in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina. What we all have in common is a love of Judaism and a mission to cultivate Jewish life for everyone who walks through our doors.

Bringing congregants to Israel has been a great joy for us over the years, and we’re excited to continue that tradition at Judea Reform Congregation. In our experience, there’s no better way to gain a deeper understanding of Israel’s history, accomplishments, and challenges (both internal and external) than to visit. And, a trip to Israel is among the very best ways to get to know one’s fellow congregants. For us, a trip so soon after our arrival at JRC is a great opportunity to get to know many of you. We’re very excited!
