The formation of our organization is an unusual effort, in part because it brings together such a range of Jewish groups and synagogues including Reform, Conservative and Orthodox.  In concert with many other Jewish lay and religious leaders in Suffolk County, ELIJA hopes to provide a place for all of the Jews of Suffolk County to come together regardless of their level of religious practice and whether affiliated with and/or not affiliated with any other specific organization.
