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!

What We're Up To

News

Every JCOGS member is feeling some measure of isolation, and it can be extreme. This week, we’re asking all our members to take the time to call three people they know within our congregation, and just ask how they’re doing. Think of it as 1987, back when we used to call each other. Beautiful things can come from one phone call.

Tikkun Olam

Capstone Community Action serves those struggling with poverty in our area. They are working incredibly hard to help people in our area who are hard hit by our economic standstill. Please consider sending a donation to support their efforts.

Education

Join us for a bedikat chametz family scavenger hunt on Tuesday, April 7, 4 pm. Grab a wooden sppon, a candle, and a feather, and let's go clear out those bits of chametz that have escaped our spring cleaning. Stay at the end to join Beth for a practice run of the Four Questions.

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.
