JRC Soup Kitchens

pictwo_soupkitchen2_7.17.16.jpg

JRC members operate three Soup Kitchens in Evanston at which groups of JRC volunteers cook a community meal for approximately 90 people in need. Participants are often asked to contribute food items for the meal, prepare, serve and clean up. Children are welcome when supervised by their parents.

After long and devoted service, some soup kitchen leaders are ready to train new leaders. Could you be one?

The Green Synagogue and the Pillars of Chai

green_synagogue_0.jpg

In 2008, we built the first platinum LEED-certified green synagogue in North America. The construction required 18 pillars - the number in Hebrew that also means "chai" or "life." 

Now, more than ten years later, JRC has launched the Pillars of Chai Campaign to raise $4.4m to wholly own our beloved building.
