Erev Shabbat Authors' Service

Start your Shabbat at JRC! Each week, our very own Rabbi Brant Rosen and Cantor Howard Friedland lead a service filled with music, discussion and cameraderie.

JRC is incredibly fortunate to have a wealth of published authors whose areas interest range from Jewish storytelling to Chicago blues legends. Tonight we'll be honoring these members with selected readings.

Member BBQ


No - we're not barbecuing JRC members! It's the last community potluck of the season, and we've enlisted Bonnie Silverman to flip veggie burgers and all-beef kosher dogs!

We'll take care of the burgers, dogs, buns, and condiments; you bring the non-dairy chips and drinks. Come rain or shine (but hope for shine).
