Come to events
  • All our events are listed on the calendar!
  • Regular events: Fourth Friday Kabbalat Shabbat, Second Saturday Shabbat services, all at the JCC.
Holiday Planning and other needs
  • All of our current needs for volunteers–to plan celebrations for Hanukkah, Purim, Passover, some Second Saturdays, and our Retreat–are available for volunteer sign ups, here.
Fourth Friday Help
  • Fourth Fridays at the JCC are our largest regular community gatherings, for prayer, discussion, eating, socializing and just plain participating in community. We need your help to set up and clean up. Rabbi AJ Heschel taught us to “pray with our feet,” and we can pray with our hands, too (dishwashing can be meaningful!).
  • Please, sign up here for a slot or two over the next several months.
Mitzvah Corps
  • The Mitzvah Corps provides the opportunity for members to participate in Tikkun Olam within our community. The Corps organizes support for member families and individuals experiencing life-cycle and emergency needs.
  • Contact the Mitzvah Corps chair for more information or to volunteer.
