Join the EDCJCC as we bring back together community. 

We'd love to host you for Shabbat in the lot, we'll provide the space for gathering, the ambiance, the musical entertainment, plus challah, grape juice, and desert. 

What does Jewish prayer have to do with eating mindfully? Explore the ancient rituals and practices for slowing down to eat a Shabbat meal and learn how to incorporate them into the way you eat! Join Director of Jewish Life, Amanda Herring, to re-imagine how we eat Jewishly.
