Based on the success and great attendance at the last event at this venue, we are holding a Men's Group dinner at the Westchester Burger Company on August 26 at 6:30 pm.
The restaurant is at 353 North Bedford Road in Mount Kisco.
Welcome to the online home of Jewish Family Congregation—a unique and vital center of Jewish life in Northern Westchester County. Small and energetic, welcoming, progressive, and egalitarian, JFC is distinctive for being warm, embracing and intimate. With our innovative, creative and friendly Rabbi, Marcus Burstein, our remarkably talented Cantor, Kerry Ben David, our award-winning educators and our magnificent choir, JFC is the place where a remarkably diverse congregation of families and singles—young and more mature—worship with energy, joy, reverence and beautiful music; explore and deepen their Jewish identities; share the happiest and most meaningful times in their lives; support one another in times of sadness and challenge; and grow and learn as Jews, residents of Westchester and citizens of the global community.
Please take the time to explore our website and to get an inkling, if only virtually, of what makes JFC so special. If you're intrigued and want to learn more, please accept our invitation to get to know us in person by being our guest for Shabbat services some Friday evening or Saturday morning, by sitting in on a torah study class, by attending one of our many special programs, by checking out our JFC history project, all of which you can explore preliminarily on our website. Or feel free to call one of us to chat or drop by to meet our Rabbi, our Cantor and our teachers.
One way or another, on-line or in person, spend some time with us and see why we're all so proud to call JFC our home.
Glenn Kurlander and Hal Wolkin, co-Presidents
What better way to wish family, friends and business associates a “Sweet and Healthy New Year” than sending honey?
ORDER ONLINE by July 21 to avoid a $4.00 per jar shipping fee.
This distinctive 8-ounce jar of kosher honey arrives in time for the Rosh Hashanah holiday, decorated with a festive label, and includes a personalized card reading “L’Shana Tova—Wishing you a Healthy and Happy New Year.” This card also lets the recipients know that a donation has been made in their honor to JFC’s Sisterhood.
Your cost is $10.00 per jar. There is a $4.00 shipping and handling fee for orders placed after July 21.
Please join us for Shabbat services, Friday, August 22. at 7:30 pm followed by Oneg Shabbat. We will continue our study of Kabbalat Shabbat. Rather than reading from the torah, we will spend time learning the structure, Hebrew, meaning, and melodies of these prayers.
