Our clergy are actively involved in the Leonia Clergy Association, a group of Leonia clergy of different faiths who meet monthly for fellowship and planning.
Our congregation participates in an annual community interfaith Thanksgiving service which is held at rotating houses of worship within Leonia.
Rabbi Schwartz led the interfaith effort to establish Leonia as a sanctuary city in 2017, resulting in the compromise resolution to declare Leonia a "welcoming community".
