Shana tova haverim! We can't wait to see your faces for the New Year. Take a look at our full schedule of JRC High Holiday experiences. Rabbi Weiss, Cantor Friedland, Rabbi Eber, and our staff and lay leadership look forward to welcoming a new, different but very sweet year together.

How to Invite Friends

We would love for you to invite your friends and relatives from all over to share the JRC High Holiday experience.
