2020-2021 (5781) sure has been an interesting year for us at JCCO – Congregation Shalom Bayit (CSB). We have come through our first year, after 30+ years unaffiliated, celebrating our affiliation with Reconstructing Judaism (RJ) and with our new Rabbi, Yossi Feintuch. Like our synagogue’s unique historical commitment to being an all-inclusive community that welcomes newcomers, interfaith families, Jews by choice, and others, we find the Reconstructionist approach to Judaism, and life, closely matches our community’s moral fiber. With its deep consideration of Judaism’s past and a passion to relate it to the present, this affiliation was a natural fit for CSB. With our official “affiliation”, we hope to attract newcomers to Central Oregon as well as appeal to those who are already here but have not been members of the local Jewish community, or, who were once, but have dropped away.
That said – we cannot begin to grow without your help. As “they” say – time, treasure, talent. We need it all. We need you all! We welcome people of all financial means. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. We have members of all ages and backgrounds. So, as we begin this new year of 5782 , a year of emerging from COVID, we hope that you will join us. We have suggested amounts on the form but all contributions are valued. If you feel you can give more, we would be ever grateful. Giving less is OK, too. Only you know how much works with your budget.
