Get ready to make some noise with JRC's very own Klezmer house band, Heavy Shtetl! The Family Megillah Reading is one wild hour of shouting, stomping, grogger-ing, and multigenerational mayhem.
Once you've made it to the end, stay for our New, Old-Fashioned, Home-Made JRC Purim Carnival & Family Funhouse! Click here for a complete schedule of Purim festivities, JRC-style.
Buckle up and settle in for quite a ride, because we're reading the whole Megillah! Everybody is absolutely welcome to attend, and even join in. If you'd like to be a reader (Hebrew or English - your choice), please contact Cantor Friedland at [email protected]. The indecisive can even show up and volunteer on the spot.
We love our bimonthly FEST Family Shabbat Service, but it's even more exciting when paired with our annual Baby Brunch! Join other families with young children for a brief, tot-friendly service led by Cantor Friedland, and learn from our Early Childhood Committee members why they love JRC's Early Childhood Center. Know someone who could use a special invitation?
Whether you're attending our annual B'nai Mitzvah Orientation this morning or are planning a simcha in the near future, join us for our annual Simcha Fair! Featuring delicious tastings from some of our favorite caterers, JRC members in the simcha biz (music, invitations, photography, decorations, etc.), and tzedakah project ideas from our ace team of tzedakah project "consultants," our Simcha Fair is a great resource for any JRC member planning celebrations.
Rock out for Thanksgivakkah, JRC-style!
Grab your family and friends and join us for our much-loved Hanukkah Family Service! Rabbi Rosen and Cantor Friedland lead the festivities, and Bonnie Silverman will delight us with a Hanukkah story. Of course we'll have delicious sufganiyot, and don't miss the performance by Heavy Shtetl - that's right, what other shul has its very own rockin' house band?
