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.
Supporting the full participation of everyone and families of all kinds.
Welcoming spiritual seekers of all backgrounds looking for a taste of Judaism.
Come and see what independent 21st century Judaism feels like.

Environmentalism in our Synagogue Communities:
Can we really make a difference?
Sunday September 16 in the Kesher Israel Sukkah
1000 Pottstown Pike WC
(indoors if it’s raining)
Join Rabbi Larry Troster and Rabbi Elyse Seidner-Joseph for dialogue, study, sharing and song.
In a synagogue setting: Is it enough to recycle? Is it even “worth” the effort?
What does our tradition have to say? IS there a Jewish mandate to be “green”?
Wondering how to consider decisions on the micro-scale and their impact on the macro-scale?
Sukkot, the holiday of being in nature, in fragile, temporary shelter, is a perfect time to engage with these questions.
5-7pm in the Sukkah at Kesher Israel
Bring-your-own dairy or vegetarian food for dinner
7pm brief Ma’ariv service as Sukkot begins
