Makom Kadosh is “holy place”
or “sacred space” in Hebrew.
Temenos, our meeting place, is “sacred space” in Greek.
Spiritually engaging, inclusive, questioning, creative and casual,
the JFCC is a community in which
adult seekers and learners take ownership
of their Jewish growth and evolving identity,
and where families experience Judaism together.
Welcoming and affirming,
and supporting the full participation of everyone,
and families of all kinds–interfaith, single parent, GLBT, Jews of color,
spiritual seekers wanting a taste of Judaism.
