JRC's Memorial Book


Our Memorial Book is more than just a list of names—it's an opportunity to share your reflections and favorite memories of your loved ones.

The Friedland-Oliker and Friedland-Parisoli Families remember their mother and grandmother, Ruth Friedland
Ruth was a terrific mother and wife; a caring person who loved everyone and who was loved by everyone.

We hope you'll share a short piece about a person you loved, perhaps focusing on who they were, what they taught you, or how we all can learn from their lives. Write about one person in particular or multiple pieces about different people, whether the loss occurred in the past year or previously. (Note: stories are limited to 100 words.)

Please note that only the names of those who died since last Rosh Hashanah (September 21, 2017) are read aloud during the Yizkor service on Yom Kippur afternoon.

Beth, Amy and Robert Lange and their families remember their parents, Maxine and Charles Lange
Last Yom Kippur our parents, Maxine and Chuck Lange, sat together in the sanctuary soaking in the beautiful music performed by the JRCymphony. As they always did, throughout their lives, they enjoyed every moment, and lived life to its fullest. They were passionate about life and loved their family, friends and long-time JRC community. We miss them every day and hold them in our hearts.

If you participated last year, you can request a copy of your submission from the JRC office to review.

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.
