The Riverdale Jewish Center is an Orthodox synagogue in the Riverdale neighborhood of the Bronx, New York City.[1]

The rabbi for the past 29+ years is Jonathan Rosenblatt. Distinguished former rabbis of the congregation include Irving Greenberg.

In the 2009 New York City bomb plot the New York City Police Department foiled a plot by American Muslims to bomb the synagogue.[2]

On May 30, 2009, New York Governor David Paterson announced he would give the Center and the Riverdale Reform Temple $25,000 each to improve their security. The money will come from the Department of Homeland Security and will primarily involve the installation of alarms and surveillance equipment.[3]
