Perrineville Jewish Center is a friendly and heymish community of families from the Millstone Township area and the surrounding Manalapan, Freehold, Twin Rivers, Hightstown, East Windsor, Allentown, Upper Freehold, New Egypt and Monroe area. Our members live in Western Monmouth, Mercer and Middlesex counties.

Beginning in the late 1800s and early 1900s, many Jewish families ventured out of the metropolitan areas to vacation in the Perrineville section of Millstone Township. As people left the cities and emigrants joined their families in America, some families decided to make Perrineville their permanent home. They bought land, became farmers, and worshipped in each other’s homes. Then, in 1910, ten men began holding formal religious ceremonies and in 1925 built our synagogue, originally known as the First Hebrew Farmer’s Association of Perrineville. As time went by, more and more of our current and former members made Millstone and PJC their home.

We are grateful to them for creating and sustaining this "jewel of a shul" and are blessed to worship here, among families that have been doing so for over six generations.

The cornerstone of our shul is our Rabbi, Sheldon Schevelowitz, who for the past 26 years has helped to grow and sustain this wonderful institution. On Saturday, March 5, 2016 we will be honoring him for his years of service and dedication to Perrineville Jewish Center and the communities it serves.
