Kick back and give back to JRC, with an evening of friends, food and fun including live music, raffles and exciting silent auction items, plus our wonderful array of JRC member hosted buy-in parties to keep you in high spirits for the rest of the year. Enjoy a delicious buffet dinner, drinks,and desserts while you browse, bid, schmooze, and sing show tunes!


Why our Annual Gala matters

Whenever we gather at JRC as a community, we strengthen our ties. The fundraising goal of $100,000 for this event helps fund the quality programs and services that we value as JRC members. The purpose is twofold: to have a great time together, and to raise important funds to support our congregation.


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

Buy-In Parties - events hosted by members to benefit JRC's Gala - range from exclusive luxury experiences to family-friendly bonanzas.  These parties annually raise over $15,0000 for JRC, and the more parties we host – the more fun (and less auction items we need to solicit).  Our buy-in coordinators are ready to help you create a great gathering to raise funds. They even have ready-to-go party ideas if you have space that can host 8 or more of your fellow JRC members.

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.
