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.
Come pray with us, have a nosh at the oneg, and introduce yourself—we look forward to meeting you!

Below you will see the story of JrDRTY Advisor and Relgious School parent Alicia Altmueller. She writes about how she and her entire family have found their place in the Jewish community through Judea Reform.
As in the past, and in the months to come, we will feature the stories of a wide variety of congregants telling how their membership in the Judea community has had an impact in their lives.
In addition to including the story in the monthly bulletin or bulletin supplement and on the Judea website, we will be honoring the individual at a Shabbat service. The intention is to increase and strengthen the ties among the many congregants of Judea Reform.
A few years back, our family was “temple shopping.” That is not such an easy task. We needed to find the right place for our beliefs, opinions and generations. We are a multigenerational home with pretty strong views and hopes for where we hang our “tallit.” The minute, we called JRC (and spoke to Joyce Gordon) – we knew we had made the right call. Once we met with Rabbi Friedman, Rabbi Berkowitz and Stacy Lubov - we could call JRC “home.”
