B'nai Mitzvah Learner's Service 

This service (recorded on April 29, 2017) serves as an example of the format and outline of the B'nai Mitzvah ritual at JRC. This video can be used by B'nai Mitzvah students, parents, and extended families to give more context and explanation of the prayers and honors that happen during the service as well as the timeflow. You can follow along with this basic outline of the B'nai Mitzvah service

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.
