JRC Birthday Bash


Saturday, April 14, 2018
Celebrating 10 years in our platinum LEED-certified synagogue building


Every year, JRC throws a fabulous party for members to enjoy together with delicious food and fine wines, entertainment and a live auction. The purpose of the night is twofold: to have a great time together, and also to raise important funds to support our congregation.

Why the JRC BIRTHDAY BASH gala matters

Whenever we gather at JRC as a community, our ties become stronger. And our fundraising goal of $75,000 for this event is integral to our ability to provide the quality programs and services that we value as JRC members. 

Keep the fun going all year long with Buy-In Parties

This year's Buy-In Parties - events hosted by members to benefit JRC's gala - are some of the most exciting yet. They range from exclusive luxury experiences to family friendly bonanzas. Even more Buy-in parties will be announced in time for the gala, and they’ll sell out quickly!

The Green Synagogue and the Pillars of Chai


In 2008, we built the first platinum LEED-certified green synagogue in North America. The construction required 18 pillars - the number in Hebrew that also means "chai" or "life." 

Now, more than ten years later, JRC has launched the Pillars of Chai Campaign to raise $4.4m to wholly own our beloved building.
