Shabbat Services

CJC has services every Shabbat on Friday night and Saturday morning.  There are a variety of services including L’Dor V’Dor, Chavurah, B’Yachad and periodic Tot Shabbat programs. Join us for  the services that suit you and your family.  Check our calendar to see the type(s) of services for a particular Shabbat.


Literally Amen means to believe. It is a congregation’s way of saying what s/he said applies to me too. I am in this with you. Mishkan Venice has developed this campaign of either using a paper to visually see the words Amen or to learn the sign for Amen. The religious practices committee thought this might be meaningful to try here. So if you are game, go this this website: and actively participate in our Shabbat services.
