Staying connected

We need to stay connected more than ever. While our building is closed, we’re available to you and all JCOGS programming will be virtual until further notice. We’ve increased our offerings, and we hope you’ll invite people in need of connection to join you as you log on. Links to programs will be in the weekly email, on Facebook, and on our website. Children's program links will be emailed to parents and accessible on the website by logged in members only. Contact jcogs@jcogs.org if you have any technical difficulties. And go to our calendar to see this week's offerings!

Homegrown Judaism

On Kol Nidrei, Rabbi David spoke to our congregation about a new initiative–homegrown Judaism. What is it? It's all about what we do at JCOGS, and we're kicking into high gear. Read Rabbi David's sermon here, and when you're all fired up, click here to find your place in our homegrown Judaism.
