We are postponing our 70 year anniversary gala celebration in light of the war in Israel. Instead, we will hold a special afternoon event on Saturday, November 11 including Shabbat services and a kiddush luncheon to honor and memorialize the soldiers and civilians we have lost in the war.
This special event will also highlight the inspiring history of our 70 years strong in Japan where community members will share their personal stories, ranging from events that marked their Jewish identities, to tales of family journeys to personal connections with the JCJ.
The JCJ has been a source of community, friendship and learning for many thousands of Jews since opening our doors in 1953. Sharing our stories builds bonds and provides strengths especially during this very difficult time.
This is a call for storytellers. If you would like to be a panelist speaker and share your story with the community, please reach out to Sherry Greenfield at JCJEvents.
Saturday, November 11
Storytelling program: 1:30pm
RSVP here for lunch
