Congregation B’nai Jacob in Jersey City held a dedication ceremony for the late Ruth and Morris Janoff, the founder of the Jewish Standard, on September 18. The shul’s new rabbi, Aaron Katz, led the ceremony. Speakers included Dean Brody of Tenafly, a member of the shul’s presidium, and the Janoffs’ children, James of Teaneck and Beth Chananie of Paramus.
The synagogue, celebrating its 58th year, is recovering from a major robbery a few weeks ago. The dedication, the rabbi’s inaugural event, marked a kick-off for the shul’s rebuilding campaign.
