Rubber City Jews

RCJ is a group for adults in their 20s and 30s with a connection, or seeking a connection, to the Akron Jewish community. Our goal is to promote continuity and togetherness by offering regular social events, learning opportunities, and holiday celebrations. While the group is rooted in Jewish Akron, we are open to all backgrounds and beliefs, and we aim to create an open minded, respectful, and engaging community of young adults who support Jewish tradition and culture. RCJ is a great way to meet people, explore the area, experience Jewish culture, and become more involved in the Akron Jewish Community.
