Multi-generational Kabbalat Shabbat service and vegetarian potluck

Is JCOGS one community? Or a series of smaller communities within a community? Surely, we are a "Religious School community", a Friday night "Kabbalat Shabbat community", and many more. This service celebrates the fact that we are indeed one community of different ages and interests and backgrounds. The service will be super musical and full of life! A vegetarian potluck will follow the service. Please RSVP to our Director of Family and Youth Programming, Stacey Oshkello: sloshkello@yahoo.com or (603) 387-8697.

Book Club

The next meeting of the JCOGS bookclub will be held on Thursday, January 28 at noon at The Whip. (It will NOT be held on January 14 as previously announced.) All are invited to join us even if you have not read this book,
"The Marriage of Opposites," by Alice Hoffman. Our discussions begin with the book – journey past lunch – and wind up anywhere we want them to go. RSVP Carole at 802-253-7408 if you want to enjoy a fun afternoon!



Sunday at the Movies!
"Making Trouble"
Sunday, January 31, 4 p.m. at JCOGS

Please note that this is a different film from the one originally announced.

We will be showing the film "Making Trouble." This is a fun movie about three generations of funny Jewish women – starting with Molly Picon and Fanny Brice, then Sophie Tucker, Joan Rivers, Gilda Radner, and Wendy Wasserstein.

This film informs, entertains and enlightens us about the history, humor, and heritage of these six incredibly talented comediennes! Enjoy refreshments after the show.
