Bye Bye Bonnie Final Farewell Potluck

Please join us for a final celebration of Bonnie Silverman!

Everyone is welcome: preschool families and alumni, JRC members, friends, and colleagues.

YOU bring a dairy/veg, nut-free main dish or side dish for 10-12 people; JRC will take care of beverages and dessert.

Take memory photos in the photo booth, enjoy dinner, drinks and dessert.

The big highlight: Bonnie reads us all a story!

American Jews & Israel/Palestine: What Do We Do If We Disagree?

As the policies of the Israeli government evolve, impacting both Israelis and Palestinians, how do we as American Jews respond? Our facilitated discussion will focus on the myriad of conflicted feelings this situation has created and what "next steps" might be possible. Your participation is welcomed. Please register so we know how many facilitators to schedule.

Israel Solidarity Day (not at JRC)

JUF's Israel Solidarity Day brings together Jews from across the Chicago area to celebrate Yom Ha'atzmaut (Israel Independence Day) at Ravinia Festival in Highland Park. Activities include concerts, drum circles, and an optional 3 mile walk.

JRC members who wish to take part as a group can meet inside the Ravinia grounds along the Bernbaum Sculpture Walk between 11 am-Noon. Bring a picnic lunch and contact Debi Lewis at 773-209-1444 when you arrive if you can't find the JRC group.
