Shabbat Services

Join our religious leader David Fainsilber as he leads us into the sweet, restoring presence of Shabbat. Musical, dynamic and participatory, these services will revive your neshama yeteira, that extra soul that we receive every Shabbat. If you are planning on coming, invite a friend! The more neshama, the better.

Labour Day Minyan, Monday, September 1, 9:30 a.m.
Join us as we gather for a traditional-style minyan this Monday morning of Labour Day, including Torah reading. Please RSVP to Rabbi David at dfainsilber@jcogs.org to ensure a minyan.

Prominent Rabbi Art Green
to Speak at JCOGS
September 12-13

Click here to RSVP to any or all of Rabbi Green's three events!

Every now and then we have the opportunity to cross paths with a great spiritual master, and for the members of the JCOGS community, one of those rare opportunities is just around the corner.

The world-renowned Jewish visionary and scholar, Rabbi Arthur Green, will act as Scholar-in-Residence for a very special Shabbaton, "Coming Home to Our Soul: Preparing for the Holy Days," at JCOGS the weekend of Sept. 12-13. We are honored to have him in our community as we prepare for the High Holy Days.

Rabbi Green will offer a special D'var Torah/sermon during our musical services on Friday, Sept. 12, at 6 p.m., followed by a *complimentary* dinner and lecture.

The next morning, on Saturday, Sept. 13, at 10 a.m., he will offer a text study followed by a vegetarian potluck brunch picnic.

As founding dean and rector of the Rabbinical School at Hebrew College, and Irving Brudnick Professor of Philosophy and Religion at Hebrew College, Rabbi Green has written over a dozen books and countless articles on Jewish mysticism, Hasidism, and theology, including his well-known book "Radical Judaism: Re-thinking God and Tradition." He is also known for his translations and interpretations of Hasidic teachings, and has lectured widely at Jewish communities and universities in North America and Israel.
