    Reservations are now closed, but everyone can access the attached document “Resources for Guests” with listings of suggested websites and books. Scroll down to click on the link.

    EVERYONE IS INVITED!

    Join us for our second Community Passover Seder at Coonamessett Inn in Falmouth. Discover why this night is truly different from other nights. A Seder is more than a meal. It is a retelling of Jewish history through song, story, music and food drawing from both tradition and innovation. You need only bring your enthusiasm, your sense of community spirit, and a hearty appetite for great food, a wonderful Seder and the camaraderie of your fellow attendees.

    Participation is by advance reservations only and seating is limited. To ensure that we accommodate as many celebrants as possible, please return your reservation form with a check payable to Falmouth Jewish Congregation no later than March 31. Experience has shown that this is a popular event. We encourage you to return your form and payment early.

    (Prices include 3% for MAZON: “A Jewish Response to Hunger.” Since 1985, MAZON, with the support of the Jewish community, has granted over $50 million to prevent and alleviate hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds.)

  • Book Discussion: Susan Faludi’s Acclaimed “In the Darkroom”

    Posted ‍‍ה כסלו ה תשעז - December 5, 2016 By in Latest News, Lifelong Learning, Special Event With | Comments Off Faludi

    For FJC Members only

    This finalist for the 2016 Kirkus Prize from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Susan Faludi is an astonishing confrontation with the enigma of her father and the larger riddle of identity consuming our age. This book discussion serves as a companion to the film “Keep Quiet,” recently screened at FJC.

     

    Is identity something you “choose,” or is it the very thing you can’t escape? Join a continued exploration of these questions as we delve into Faludi’s extraordinary inquiry into the meaning of identity in the modern world as seen through the lens of her father’s return to his native Hungary and his sex reassignment surgery. When Faludi chases the mystery of her father’s transformation, she drops into a labyrinth of dark histories and dangerous politics in a country determined to repress its past and construct a fanciful – a virulent – nationhood.

  • Social Action Committee Activities this Fall

    Posted ‍‍יב אלול ה תשעו - September 15, 2016 By in Latest News, Social Action With | Comments Off winter coat

    Updates from FJC’s Social Action Committee (September 2016)

     

    Update on Belonging to Each Other:

     

    Do you have time to volunteer one morning a month from December through March?  Belonging to Each Other (BTEO), the Falmouth community wide initiative to provide our homeless neighbors with shelter, is in need of drivers to transport people to medical appointments.   If you are only able to commit to one or two mornings over the course of the winter, that’s ok!  Please do add your name to the list of volunteers.  To sign up, please contact Fran Senner-Hurley

     

    Do you have graphic design talents?  Belonging to Each Other, which has recently applied for incorporation, is in need of a logo.  If you are interested in working with this group on a pro bono basis to create a logo, please contact Fran Senner-Hurley.

     

     

    Winter Clothing Drive

    September 1 we will begin collecting lightly used clean winter clothing for children and adults.  Please leave your donations in the closet next to Speen Hall.

     

     

    Call for VOLUNTEERS for Citizenship Classes

    Calling all volunteers willing to help someone in our community prepare to become a citizen!  Citizenship classes will be held at the Falmouth Public Library, starting in September on Tuesdays from 5pm – 8pm. Volunteers will be needed for both English help and partnering with an individual to help navigate the class.   Contact SCACCI (Community Action Committee of Cape Cod & Islands), or Immigration Services in Hyannis [508-771-1727], Falmouth office coming soon to sign up as a volunteer.  Helping someone learn the language that will take him or her down the road toward citizenship will be an enriching experience!

     

    Tzedakah will benefit Heroes in Transition, Inc.

     

    In September an anonymous donor will match the first $100 donated to HIT.  Our veterans deserve our support!

    FJC’s Tzedakah Box recipient through the end of 2016 is a wonderful local organization, Heroes in Transition.  Started by Cyndy and Ken Jones after their only child Eric, a handsome Captain in the Marines, was killed in a helicopter crash while supporting a mission over Afghanistan.  Heroes raises funds for assistance dogs for veterans with PTSD and also supports the Falmouth Service Center in providing meals for military families on Joint Base Cape Cod.  During the month of September an anonymous donor will match the first $100 collected.  So please consider making a contribution as you walk by the Tzedakah Box.  If you are unable to come to FJC during September, you can mail a check to FJC made payable to Heroes in Transition.

     

    Heroes In Transition, Inc. (HIT) is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization which provides assistance to military service members, currently deployed or returned, and their families.
