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.

Renew your membership for the FY24-25 year!

May is the beginning of the new fiscal year at the LJCC. Renew your membership and your commitment to making Jewish life and learning possible in Lawrence, KS! We appreciate those of you able to pledge/renew by May 9th so that we can have a solid sense of this aspect of organizational finances going into our annual meeting set for June 9th at 10:30am.
