Community

 

PATHS TO COMMUNITY

There are many paths to community. Congregants can choose from a wide range of groups and activities, including many committees.

Adult Education Committee
The mission of adult education at the JCK is to promote lifelong Jewish learning and discussion reflecting the interests of our members and the underlying values of our Reform Judaism. The programs are designed to bring JCK members together to explore topics of interest, share perspectives, and learn from one another, enabling us to become more knowledgeable about our Jewish identity and issues relevant to our congregation and the broader community. For more information or to suggest a program/speaker, contact Ken Balick

Community Outreach
This committee is one of the public faces of the JCK. The committee organizes projects, involving both adults and children, through which congregants can help those less fortunate. The committee has developed annual programs with specific charities. 

Fundraising Committee
The Fundraising Committee develops programming designed to supplement membership dues.

Publicity
The members of this committee represent another public face of the JCK. The committee issues press releases and arranges for the press to visit and interview various members of the Congregation at various times. It serves to raise the profile of the JCK within the community. 

Social Committee
The Social Committee is responsible for planning social gatherings for the Congregants. It seeks to bring people together in relaxed settings and allow them to socialize with friends, neighbors and fellow members.
