II.  VOLUNTEER TO HELP OUT OR TAKE PART IN THE SERVICE

Rabbi Shimon the Righteous talks about the 3 “pillars” upon which the world rests: Torah, Avodah (Worship,) and Gimilut Hassadim (Acts of Lovingkindess).   Pirkei Avot 1:2

MCJC can always use your help. Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity to take an active part in our Jewish community, enriching the High Holy Days experience for yourself and others.

Passover 2018: It All Starts with a Question

Passover 2018: It All Starts with a Question

In the Jewish tradition, there’s a sense that everything gets moving as a result of a problem, a question, a Machloket in Hebrew. That even the most provocative question is still better than no question because, in the words of Rabbi Professor Donniel Hartman, questions, questioning, push at the limits of the sort of silent conspiracy of the way things have to be.

 

Shabbat Ba’Bayit: Shabbat in the Home Friday, January 19, 2018, at 6:30 pm

The Sages of old spoke of Shabbat as a glimpse of the World to Come. A gift to us human beings from the Treasure-house of HaShem, The Divine.

All are welcome to bring in Shabbat with prayers, singing and a Kosher Shabbat dinner at the home of MCJC members Steve and Sharon Danzig. Steve and Sharon will prepare a traditional Kosher chicken dinner, just like Bubbe used to make, but even better!

We are past the RSVP date. However, if you do wish to participate, please contact Jill Purvin at events@mcjconline.org, or leave a message with the MCJC office at 815-455-1810, to help us plan.

NOTE: The MCJC building will be closed this Friday night.
