Join your JRC family at Noah's Playground (Lawson Park near Lighthouse Landing) for our informal Erev Shabbat Service led by Rabbi Rosen and Cantor Friedland in a beautiful park setting. Pack a dairy/vegetarian picnic dinner and come early (6 pm) to eat and schmooze.
Noah's Playground for Everyone is a fully accessible playground dedicated in memory to Noah Cutter (son of JRC members Julie and David Cutter), who dealt with a number of special needs before his death in December 2005 at the age of 2 1/2. Julie and David spearheaded an enormous community effort to raise over $400,000 to build a fully handicap-accessible playground and improve accessibility to nearby Lighthouse Beach and its restrooms.
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!
