Healing Service (Refuat HaNefesh)

All are welcome to join us for a quiet, reflective, and restorative healing service.  We gather once a month to sit in silence,  to gently sing, and to share prayers for healing.  We pray for ourselves, for people we love, for members of our community, and for the greater world.  By being together, we acknowledge that we are not alone in our pain.

Religious School Begins

Sitting at the intersection of tradition, innovation and community, the Religious School at GJC is committed to educating a new generation of children for our evolving Jewish world.  Our program urges students to be curious about their Judaism, and integrates cutting edge teaching methods like Hebrew Through Movement.  As they learn and explore, students build confidence in their knowledge and connection to our tradition, competency in prayer and ritual skills, and a strong sense of Jewish identity and connection.

Hazak (55+) Film & Discussion: "Frozen River"

Frozen River is a complex film, starring Melissa Leo as a single mother of two boys who must sustain the family and find the money for a trailer home before her deposit is lost. She takes some risky measures she would not ordinarily take. In her desperation she also forms a strong, loyal relationship with an unlikely native American woman, which brings this ongoing national issue into focus.  Major themes of the film include poverty, illegal immigration and single parenting on the face of extra ordinary adversity. Difficult and very moving.
