August 2018 / 5778 Av
Dear Friends and Fellow Congregants,
As the Hebrew calendar year of 5778 comes to a close, and Jews around the world prepare for the Days of Awe, the JHJC is still enjoying a packed summer full of events.
As in previous years, we’d like to acknowledge how the valley’s oldest Jewish congregation continues to grow and the many ways we deepen our connections to the people of Jackson Hole, and beyond. This past year we have welcomed new households as members into our community and unveiled new partnerships, including our “sister” Kibbutz Hanita in northern Israel and Jackson Hole Chamber Music. Perhaps you attended one of these collaborative events. In addition, our Bet Sefer students completed a three-year curriculum, culminating in the presentation of their handmade Torah to the congregation.
We’ve also met some fascinating people who have wandered into our shul after noticing our sign outside of the Centennial building. Moreover, they’ve asked to remain connected, either through our email communications or social media, because “they wanted to feel some connection to Jackson Hole Jews.”
As a grassroots congregation, it’s essential for our JHJC friends and members to stay engaged. Your membership contributions, whether it be financial, volunteering or attending our vibrant events, make a difference to not only our local Jewish community but to Jews beyond the Tetons. We hear often that our Shabbat services, holiday celebrations, summer camp and b’nei mitzvot, combined with our soulful leadership, is a profound experience for our longtime local members, new members, and visitors alike. We know it is for us!
So as we approach the beginning of a new year together, we ask for your engagement and support. Renew your membership, become a member, share a donation, come to events and services, or volunteer. Your membership dues, your yearly gifts and your direct participation in events and as volunteers are vital in continuing to support the JHJC as a dynamic hub for Jewish life in Jackson Hole.
Whether this is your first time connecting with the JHJC, or if you are a founding member, we hope you will join us as we celebrate and engage in our active and vital Jewish community in this place we are all so fortunate to call home.
