The local JEC community encompasses Elizabeth and Hillside, New Jersey. Aside from the three educational divisions of the Jewish Educational Center, we are home to 5 shuls and 3 mikvaot serving 500 families. Under the leadership of Rav Teitz, our local vaad harabonim supervises kashruth in 3 local restaurants. Our community features quiet, tree-lined streets, green lawns and affordable housing.
