Makom Kadosh is “holy place”
or “sacred space” in Hebrew.
Temenos, our meeting place since October 2010,
is “sacred space” in Greek.
Come co-create sacred space with us!
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.

“This book will sweep you up in its narrative force and not let go of you until it is done. [Shavit’s] accomplishment is so unlikely, so total . . . that it makes you believe anything is possible, even, God help us, peace in the Middle East.”—Simon Schama, Financial Times
“Reads like a love story and a thriller at once.”—Dwight Garner, The New York Times
“[A] searingly honest, descriptively lush, painful and riveting story of the creation of Zionism in Israel and [Shavit’s] own personal voyage.”—The Washington Post
