Give Rabbi Weiss A Huge JRC Welcome on Aug. 5 (Beach Services)

Rabbi Rachel Weiss PortraitBeach 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!

Join us for dinner before services Elliot Park (Dempster Street Beach). Pack a dairy/vegetarian meal. Head to the beach area. Eat and schmooze with all your JRC friends.

Erev Shabbat Service starts - 7pm

After dinner, stay for our informal Erev Shabbat Services led by Rabbi Weiss and Cantor Friedland on the beautiful Evanston lakefront.

In case of rain: we always try hold out and go to the lakefront, but in case of rain, the whole operation - 6 pm picnic, 7 pm service - moves to the JRC Social Hall. So come rain or shine, be sure to join us!
