Committees

 
As a lay-led community, there is always work to be done -from caring for the B'nai Israel Cemetery to organizing the High Holidays. Whether you are a musician, a baker, an accountant, a gardener, or an educator, your unique skills are valuable. The LJCC is a collective endeavor, its shape and vitality determined by those who choose to be involved.
 
No matter who you are we would love to work in partnership with you to keep our Jewish community active and fulfilled. Email us at lawrencejcc@gmail.com  or call us at 785-841-7636 to find out how to get involved. 

 

Ritual Committee

The ritual committee is at the heart of the LJCC, planning services, holidays, lifecycle events, and other religious observances. The committee meets monthly to make sure things run smoothly and that the community has lay leaders for all of its ritual needs.
 

Family programming Committee

Family Programming Committee Working closely alongside the religious school director, the Family Programming Committee (FPC) oversees education and youth and family programming from preschool to the post-B'mitzvah teen years. The FPC works to achieve the shared communal goal to integrate our youngest members (and their learning) into the broader life of the congregation.
 

blintz Brunch committee

Historically, the LJCC's only fundraiser, the Blintz Brunch is one of our favorite (and most fabled) events. Annually the Sunday before election day, the LJCC opens its doors to the entire Lawrence community. All are welcome to join, especially those with experience in marketing, organization, and administration.
 

CEMETERY COMMITTEE

The cemetery committee oversees and manages the B'nai Israel Cemetery on behalf of the LJCC board. The B'nai Israel Cemetery was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2013 and the LJCC is honored to serve as its steward.
 

Tikkun olam

The LJCC currently pursues Tikkun Olam through participation in Lawrence Interdenominational Nutritional Kitchen (L.INK). We always need volunteers to provide casseroles, fruit, and desserts for our lunch delivery. The LJCC invites new and existing members to join the tikkun olam committee and to inspire our community to pursue social justice through educational and humanitarian programs.
