Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation is a 500-plus household congregation known for its joyful spirituality, intellectual curiosity, inclusivity, and deep commitment to social justice.
We have built a highly acclaimed green building, and our rabbi has been heralded by Newsweek magazine as one of the top 25 pulpit rabbis in the United States. But most of all, JRC is about people - our members. Our congregation is as diverse as the American Jewish community, including observant and nonobservant Jews, interfaith families, blended families, people of color, gays and lesbians, believers and nonbelievers.

What You've Been Waiting for All Year: Shabbat by the Beach
Life's too short to stay indoors, so we're headed to the beautiful Evanston lakefront to celebrate Shabbat. Pack a dairy/veg picnic (sorry, no alcohol per the Park District) and settle in to your favorite spot for a relaxing and refreshing Erev Shabbat service. The first date is Friday, July 5 - check out our calendar for more dates and locations.
