JRC members are welcome to bring a picnic dinner to enjoy in the sukkah. This event is not a potluck; instead it is an opportunity for families to bring their own meals to enjoy outside in keeping with Sukkot traditions. Please remember that food should be dairy/vegetarian and should not contain nuts.
The entire JRC community is invited to celebrate with Isaac Bernstein and his family as he is called to the Torah as Bar Mitzvah. A special aliyah will be given to members of the JRC community.
This celebratory service marks the beginning of a new cycle of reading Torah. Join JRC and our resident Klezmer band Heavy Shtetl for a party including dancing, taffy apples, and our tradition of unfurling the torah around the room.
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.
Celebrate Shabbat with music and movement for very young children. We welcome everyone with a Bim Bom Shabbat Song, and end with a juice and challah oneg snack by hour's end. A great combination of original tunes and familiar chants in English and Hebrew. Everyone is welcome and everyone can sing along!
