Sunday, April 23, 2023

The JCC of Harrison will hold the Eighth JCCH Mitzvah Day. While we have just begun to plan, the day already promises to hold a rewarding combination of hands-on activities and interactive experiences for all ages. We hope very much that ALL of our members can “do good, feel good” by helping those in need across our community.

Each $100 sponsorship will help to cover the costs of producing this event, making it possible for more of our budget to go directly to our beneficiaries, rather than expenses. (Please note, sponsorship donations will not cover Mitzvah Day registration fees.)


Thank you, in advance, for your support of this meaningful day. If you have questions, please contact Sue Pearson at susanLpearson@yahoo.com.

We look forward to hearing from you!

A “NEW” opportunity for Jewish Learning. . . . . “Gutsy Torah”

Join Rabbi Siegel each Sunday in the JCCH library, following the 9:00 AM morning minyan, for an hour of “eye-opening” discussion of the week’s Torah portion plus a “bagel” breakfast. Meet, discuss, and debate “up close and personal” with the most profound and controversial Torah scholars of the past two thousand years.

Morning Minyan – 9:00 AM followed immediately by breakfast & Gutsy Torah at 9:30 AM. We conclude no later than 10:30 AM.

Come for the davening; stay for the learning + breakfast!
