This Week at WJC ~ August 3

The community meeting on Tuesday, August 4, will be a Mincha service that will begin at 6:40pm, using the same link as our community time (see below), to allow for people to attend the funeral service of Jose Luis Fonseca’s mother, Clara Ines Salazar. There will be no Maariv service.

Please note: The Tuesday morning and Thursday evening classes that we have been offering will be on a temporary hold as we reset our calendar for the coming synagogue year and adapt to the ever-changing coronavirus situation. Please stay tuned for the new class schedule coming out in the next couple of weeks.

Prayer Services and Opportunities to say Kaddish

Weekdays and Sundays, 8:00am

This minyan is a combination of live, in-person minyan with exactly ten people present in the chapel, and the ability to log-in through the Zoom link below. This halachically counts as a full minyan for those present AND those on Zoom. Currently, we are limiting the number of people who can attend in person. If you are interested in attending—we understand not everyone is feeling ready to do so—please contact with your interest and the day(s) of the week you are interested in attending.
