Rabbi Hammerman's Corner

Shortly after Chanukah last year, I read an article in the New York Jewish Week that continues to resonate with me. The piece identified a new trend in Jewish life, a “fluidity,” as they termed it, in Jews’ connections to Jewish bricks-and-mortar institutions (think:  the synagogue).  What they meant was that the spiritual lives of Twenty-First Century American Jews are less stable, perhaps, than the lives that our parents or grandparents led. While earlier generations might have joined a synagogue and never left – for decades – or remained just as traditional as they were when they first arrived in this country, younger generations of Jews are challenging synagogues and other Jewish institutions with their “fluidity.”

Important Announcements

Welcome to our new website! 

There’s a new spirit at the JCCH.  With a new Rabbi, new programming, new innovations in our ECC and Religious School and a new main sanctuary, the JCCH is building on its rich heritage to better serve its congregants—spiritually, socially and educationally.  

What better time to introduce a new website!  Now our “virtual visitors” can enjoy a site that’s easy to navigate, easy to find the information they’re after and, we’d like to think, easy on the eyes.  Have a look around. Come capture the new spirit…on our site or, better still, on our campus.  You’re always most welcome!

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.
