Volunteer Fair

Volunteer HandsWe frequently hear members say that they'd like to get more involved with JRC and help out, but don't know how to get started. Our Volunteer Fair on the first day of school is a great opportunity to dive in. Meet fellow JRC members representing our various committees, task forces and activities. Choose from a variety of positions and tasks, all needed to maintain our vibrant congregation.

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!
