JCCH 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.

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.
