An 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. 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 bagel breakfast & Gutsy Torah at 9:30 AM. We conclude no later than 10:30 AM.

Come for the davening; stay for the learning!

7:15 PM Community Yom Hashoah Gathering
Together as one community, let us gather to remember our six million martyrs in a brief program consisting of music, film, readings, and prayer. The program is jointly sponsored by the JCCH, KTI, Congregation Emanu-El, and CSR.

This year will be hosted by the Community Synagogue of Rye, 200 Forest Avenue, Rye. Registration is required.


We are excited to announce our Women’s Wellness Workshops, where all women are invited to join us and discover simple ways to nourish your mind, body, and soul. Our workshops will focus on the understanding that our mind, body, and soul are all interconnected, and when one of these elements is off balance, it affects our entire being.

Therefore, finding ways to re-center and restore all three areas is essential. We invite you to join us for programming that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.


Thursday, April 4th at 7:30 PM
Rescheduled to Thursday, May 9 at 7:30 PM

(“Letting Go” )

As we approach the holiday of Pesach, what are you ready to let go of as you leave Egypt behind and enter the Holy Land? We’ll do our own ‘Spring Cleaning’ as we look at the material, mental, and emotional “baggage” we can no longer carry into the New World.

And in the created space, the question remains, “What now will we choose to bring?”


Thursday, May 9 at 7:30 PM
Led by Ronit Razinovsky

(Challah Bake)

The act of baking Challah became a symbol of our collective prayers and hopes for a better time. As we kneaded and shaped the dough, our thoughts transcended borders, recognizing that the Jewish people in Israel and around the world are threads in the same fabric, bound by a shared history and common values.

Much like the Challah’s intricate weave, we understand that our strength lies in unity. We are a resilient community that stands together, supporting one another through both joyous celebrations and somber moments.

Our commitment to Jewish values of love, kindness, and the pursuit of peace guides us in times of hardship, reminding us of our shared responsibility to contribute to a better world.



We are looking for players interested in joining us ON SITE to play Mah Jongg on Wednesdays from Noon – 3:00 PM. Note, when a movie is shown on the last Wednesday of the month, the playing time is 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM.


Please email Barbara Sommerfeld if you would like to play.
