Beach Services (at Elliot Park)
Rabbi Rachel Weiss is one of those leaders that, when she walks in the door, people want her on their team. Her grace, warmth and spirituality are contagious. That's why we feel so excited and so lucky she's coming to JRC.
So, let's show her the excitement we're all feeling! Rally your friends and neighbors to give Rabbi Weiss a huge, warm welcome on Friday, August 5. That's when she'll lead her first JRC service at Elliot Park on Evanston's Lakefront.
Rabbi Weiss, her wife, Julia, and their daughters, Hannah and Norah, are super excited about coming to JRC. And they wanted to share that excitement with all of you! Check out the family's awesome, absolutely adorable hello from Camp JRF.
Better yet, share the video with your friends and neighbors. Tell them there's no better place to be August 5 than at JRC's picnic and Erev Shabbat service. We'll see you there!
