Rabbi Hammerman's Corner

I write these words just a few days before I officially become Rabbi of the Jewish Community Center of Harrison.  While my tenure is not even underway, the wonderfully-warm welcome is in full-force.  Indeed, for a number of months now, members of the congregation of all ages have sought us out to make sure that we were comfortable, to offer assistance in our move and to share their excitement about our arrival as the congregation looks toward a bright future.  What wonderful expressions of concern and care.  As Tony Bennett  - and Toyota - used to say, “Who could ask for anything more?”

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.


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.
