Rabbi Hammerman's Corner

I write to you this month to ask for your vote.  Yes, really – your vote. 

You may not know that there is an important election going on right now in the Jewish world, an election where each one of us has the right to vote.  It is the World Zionist Organization (WZO) elections and I am on the ballot as a delegate, representing you and representing Conservative Judaism.  Please – right now – go to votemercaz.org, register, note my name on Slate #2, then vote for our entire slate, for Conservative Judaism (Slate #2). 

Now that I’ve asked for your vote, I owe you some background into why this matters.

Important Announcements

In remembrance of Yom Hashoa,

The JCCH is pleased to present the 

Third Annual Holocaust Exhibit

March 24th through April 17th.

Created with love, care and sensitivity by the Ifrah family, this marvelous exhibit uses various visuals, props and stories to describe and bring home both the pain and inspiration of the Holocaust.  It is suitable for children and, in fact, is a most appropriate way to introduce them to this significant part of our history.

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.

Happenings

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.
