Rabbi Hammerman's Corner

New York Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores, a native of Venezuela who signed as a free agent with the NY Mets organization at 16 years of age, came up to bat in the middle of a late July game to thunderous applause.  

Flores noticed the applause but did not know what was behind them.  It was an inconsequential at-bat – Flores grounded out and returned to the dugout.  Only then did he learn the reason for the ovation – Mets fans had gotten word through social media that Flores, standing there at bat, was to be traded to the Milwaukee Brewers. They were applauding him as he concluded his seven-year tenure with the Mets – unbeknownst to player himself!

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.


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.
