Welcome to the Lawrence Jewish Community Congregation!

The LJCC is a lay-led and pluralistic community located in the heart of Lawrence, KS. As a non-denominational shul, we seek to be a home to all the Jews of Lawrence as well as their Jewish-adjacent loved ones. Ours is a community defined by egalitarianism and inclusivity. We achieve this inclusivity through respecting the variety of ways in which people live their Jewishness. We welcome those who wish to join us in that spirit of inclusivity and in our effort to lead more connected and meaningful lives through learning, worship, celebration and the collective pursuit of tikkun olam.

An outgrowth of the Focus Groups held this winter, we have crafted an Operations and Budget Info sheet and an FAQ.

Premiered in 2018, "The Path to Heaven" is a powerful and moving one act opera with music by Adam Gorb and words by Ben Kaye. A tale of extremism, expedience and deceit, the work exposes the disintegration of the loves, lives and hopes of a family struggling to survive during the Holocaust.
