You Are Essential to JRC

Whether JRC gathers in our beautiful building, an Evanston beachfront, or in your living room on Zoom, our congregation is here to hold emotions and traditions – both celebratory and loss-filled – and to be a gathering place for all. Rabbi Hillel wrote, “al tifrosh min ha tzibur,” meaning “don’t separate yourself from the community. We hope what our fellow members gain from membership at JRC isn’t merely transactional or tangible, but rather an ongoing sense of connection, commitment, sanctity and love. In order for JRC to be here for you and for your children in years to come, we hope you’ll continue to invest in us now. We need your ideas, your presence, and your support. We are right here for you, and we need you right here beside us.

Commitment Range and Adjustments

At JRC we provide a membership commitment range rather than a fixed amount for each household. We are committed to ensuring that any individual who would like to make JRC their spiritual home should be able to do so regardless of financial means. If you are able, we encourage you to select a commitment level above the minimum. Your generosity allows us to continue our longstanding practice of welcoming all members. And if you would like to discuss a dues adjustment, please contact JRC’s Executive Director, Micky BaerYou will not be asked to disclose the reason for your request.
