Shabbat Morning led by Sam Shnider


As of Tuesday, April 9, 2019, the JCM kitchen has gone through a strict koshering process and has been converted for cooking meat in the kitchen for Passover. The kitchen doors will be locked, and there is no access. We have a few things upcoming prior to Passover, and our kosher kitchen will be strictly enforced. 

We have a variety of attendees in our shul over these next few weeks, and we are committed to our Kosher for Passover kitchen at this time. 

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter, and we will report back when it has been turned back into a Dairy Kosher kitchen.

From the President

It's time for a new election...Click here for election information. Please note we are voting on new bylaws on this upcoming ballot.

It has been so rewarding to be part of this renewal at JCM. We are bursting with classes, parties, holiday celebrations, and lots of festivities on the calendar. Be part of this exciting time in our JCM story. I have been looking for a community, I have lots of friends, but I wanted a real community. Over the past few months, I have been overwhelmed with the feeling of community with the new friends and connections I've made, and I finally feel like I have a Jewish community here...and I am so grateful. I feel so proud to be part of JCM.

We all need to make the commitment to be part of this community. My husband thinks I'm crazy for taking so much on (and maybe I am), and it's the best thing I've done this year, and I am so glad I said yes.

This congregation belongs to all of us, and it will take all of us working together (even if we disagree) to ensure that we have a congregation and community. It's for us, our children, and our future... together, we can do this!

Run for office, come to our events, donate... we need leaders, participants, and money in order for us to not just exist, but to thrive. I know times of change and transition can be unsettling, and I know we'll get to other side stronger and better for going through all this together. I will see you soon!

Words of Wisdom

This week is the week before Passover, and this Shabbat is referred to as “Shabbat Hagadol” (The Great Shabbat). Why is this Shabbat called Shabbat Hagadol? The truth is that no one knows for certain. The naming of this Shabbat is one of those particular Jewish customs that have multiple explanations, and none that is final and authoritative.

"Israel: Cutting Through the Rhetoric"

Add a note on your order that you'll see him on Maui!

So much of what we hear about Israel, whether on the news or from social media, is confusing and contradictory. But you can learn--from an activist, author, and educator-- how to better interpret what you're reading, and place it in appropriate context.

Dr. Michael Harris was one of the founders of San Francisco Voice for Israel, which is now the Bay Area chapter of StandWithUs, an international Israel education organization based in Los Angeles. He has spoken about Israel at synagogues, churches, political groups and senior citizen centers, as well as standing up for Israel against anti-Israel demonstrators on the streets of the Bay Area. He has appeared on radio and television news reports as a local spokesperson for StandWithUs and SF Voice for Israel. In his spare time, he is a pediatrician in Marin County California. The second edition of his book, ‘Winning a Debate with an Israel Hater’, was published in November 2018.
