Reflecting the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam (Repair of the World), the JRC community is committed to the healing of the world around us through congregational education, activism, advocacy, and consciousness-raising.
JRC’s committees provide congregants with opportunities for fulfillment and involvement in synagogue life. Fostering connection and community, committee members work with staff to provide programming and services for all members to enjoy.
Our congregation has organized task forces in areas of interest to our members, and we are actively interested in launching new task forces as new concerns arise and members are moved to action. Task Force participants meet to share information and identify opportunities for JRC members to be involved in social, educational, religious, and political issues. Task Force members organize and get involved in activities within the synagogue, in Evanston and the greater Chicago area, around the country, and around the world.
