Rabbi Hammerman's Corner

Yesterday, we welcomed the Israeli Tzofim/Scouts “Friendship Caravan” to the JCCH.  This troupe of teenage performers - touring North America this entire summer - is an energetic and inspirational example of the best that Israel has to offer.  They met our nursery school students, performed in concert on my front lawn, joined one hundred of us for a great BBQ dinner and were then hosted by six JCCH families who reported to me this morning on how much they enjoyed their young Israeli guests.  About the performance - they brought us a full day of great music and dancing, of course.

Important Announcements

The JCCH had one of its most memorable days in recent memory on Sunday, April 26th.  The culmination of a weekend filled with festivities, we were privileged to dedicate our newly renovated sanctuary, named for our esteemed congregant of blessed memory, Lee Javitch.  At the same time, we installed Eytan Hammerman as the synagogue's sixth Rabbi in its nearly 60-year history.  The dedication and installation were preceded by a full-fledged parade up and down Harrison's Union Avenue (closed for the occasion) and followed by a wonderful al fresco luncheon.

Weekly Programs

The JCCH offers a full spectrum of programs at regular intervals throughout the year.  Some revolve around religious themes; others are more secular in nature.  All are carefully planned by our lay volunteers and staff, and are enthusiastically attended by various segments of our community:  from children to singles to young parents to empty nesters.  Our regularly scheduled programs include short story discussions, torah study classes, morning minyans and “Tot Shabbats.”

Religious Services

While we pride ourselves in our cultural, social and educational programming, the heart of the JCCH is its religious life.   Our services are carefully designed to enrich lives, touch souls and create community.  We have musical services, traditional services, large sanctuary services, intimate lay-led chapel services, kids’ services and twice-weekly minyanim.  Everyone, member or not, is always welcome.


Synagogue Happenings

The JCCH calendar is punctuated with many exciting events.  While several revolve around holidays, many others are of our own making and have become lasting traditions.  We are particularly proud of our intergenerational celebrations. Events include Purim Spiels, “Hanukkah Hooplas,” guest lecturers, trips to museums, cooking demonstrations, and even Israeli wine tastings.
