You Make It Happen

As 2017 draws to a close, we begin to look back at all that we have accomplished together this year.

It has truly been a landmark year, with 800+ of us singing and praying together at the High Holidays. We were beaming with pride during B’nai Mitzvah celebrations, and welcomed friends and neighbors at JCP’s first-ever Fall Open House Fundays. And, our schools are thriving, with the JCPlay program happily bursting at the seams.

Just last night, we hosted nearly 300 people in Washington Market Park for our annual community Hanukkah candle lighting. (Just one of eight ways our community is celebrating the festival of lights this year!)

Now, with great excitement, we look forward to all that will happen at JCP in 2018:

• The joy of family Shabbat dinners and a special Havdalah Tot Shabbat
• Festive Holiday celebrations – including the Purim Carnival & Shpiel
• Toasting our honorees at the JCP Benefit 2018
• Watching students in the Preschool & Hebrew School learn and explore
• And, so much more!

Giving is at the heart of JCP — and so is gratitude. Thank you for being part of our community. As you consider your personal philanthropy at year end, please choose to support JCP. Make your tax-deductible gift now.

Let’s build meaningful Jewish life downtown together.

Thank you and warmest wishes.
