Sermons & Reflections

Each year, in addition to the Rabbi's High Holiday sermons, JRC members are invited to share their personal reflections on a variety of subjects related to their experiences as Jews. On Yom Kippur afternoon, JRC hosts Open Mic, an opportunity for members to address the congregation with reflections on the past year.
