Judaism is not about theory – it’s all about experience, action, and connection.

What is Exhibit J Experience All About?

Judaism is not about theory – it’s all about experience, action, and connection. And you don’t know what you’ve got until you try it. You own your Judaism. Try it out.

The Shabbos Candlelighting Initiative

Every Friday evening, Jewish women across the globe light up the world by kindling the Shabbos candles. At Exhibit J we want to help every young Jewish woman on Staten Island be part of them and experience the light and joy of Shabbos. Challenge: Commit to light candles every Friday before sundown for 8 weeks, and a beautiful set of candlesticks is yours to enjoy.

The Library Initiative

Dedicated to Rabbi Dovid Winiarz (the Facebuker Rebbe), of blessed memory. The man who was "single handedly" planting seeds of Jewish education on Staten Island.

We are known as the People of the book. We became a nation when we received the Torah. Our identity hinges on our knowledge, and our generous partners are happy to share this gift with you.

We will get you a book or two that can help you further your discovery of Judaism and enhance your life!


If you’re interested in a mitzvah or Jewish experience not listed on this page, we can help you with that too – Sukkah, Chanukiah, Matzah, and any other Jewish practice within our means.

If you are interested in sponsoring one of these initiatives, or in creating one of your very own, become our partner and Donate NOW!
