Yom Hashoah Commemoration

On the evening of April 24, 2017, members of the YJC community gathered to commemorate the Shoah.  This year's program focussed  on how several descendants of Nazis have come to grips with their legacy.


Purim 5777 (2017)

On the evening of March 11. members of the Y.J.C. community gathered to read the megillah and show off their costumes as well. We were then treated to our ninth annual Purimspiel wherein the talented cast, led by our distinguished narrator, Bernie Lipsy, re-told some stories from the bible that were introduced by tweets!  Enjoy the photos.
