WELCOME TO THE JCK
When you visit the JCK we are sure that you will feel at home at our various services, programs, and social events. The JCK family is known for its intimate, welcoming, inclusive, and informal character where our Jewish culture and traditions come to life in vibrant and modern ways. We welcome non-Jewish partners to participate in all areas of congregational life. Whether you are looking for a spiritual connection, Jewish education, opportunities for social action, or social programming, the JCK has what you have been looking for in a congregation!
As the rabbi of the JCK, my goal is to facilitate the presentation of Judaism, our texts, culture, theology, food, and Israel, in a way that will instill a sense of excitement and wonderment in Jews of all ages, and lead toward increased curiosity, spirituality and a real sense of community.
At the JCK we empower our community members to take ownership ofthe aspects of Judaism with which they identify, interact, and in which they are most invested; guiding them towards greater confidence in their Jewish identities and practice. We look forward to welcoming you at one of our services or other great events during the year.
B’Shalom (in peace),
Rabbi Josh Leighton

If you have not fully paid your dues, we greatly appreciate your sending in as much as you comfortably can. If, for some unknown reason, you find yourself with some extra funds and just don't know what to do...please think of JCK.
