"Until recently, there had been no Jewish organizations or activities in the area, which forms the northern tip of Manhattan.
Rabbi Hartz, who was ordained in May, told himself someone should do something.
That something is Inwood Jews (inwoodjews.com), an outreach organization he founded earlier this year to sponsor a series of educational and social events.
“It’s not a shul — yet,” he says. “It’s events.”
So far Inwood Jews has sponsored a Shavuot cheesecake giveaway, a Lag b’Omer barbecue and a “drum circle” get-together, all in Inwood Hill Park. This week: “quasi-davening” in the park, with lots of stories and singing, on the first day of Rosh HaShanah.
On Sukkot, he pedaled around the area with a sukkah attached to his bike."
