Finding Meaning and the Joy of Jewish all year long…

The Jewish Collaborative strives to imbue relevance and purpose into the rich and textured cycles of Jewish life and worship. We help people connect to moments of joy and memory embedded into the Jewish calendar through innovative and collaborative programs that help reinforce Jewish identity, values and spirituality. 

For those seeking opportunities to celebrate Jewish festivals (Passover, Sukkot, Shavuot, Purim, Hanukkah and Yom Ha’atzmaut) and honor memorial days (Yom Hashoah, Yom Hazikaron, Tisha b’Av) through traditional worship, JCoOC is committed to bringing together smaller synagogue communities throughout the area for colorful, collaborative services that draw county-wide participation, virtually and in-person. As a community-minded organization, we also encourage our followers to attend select programs associated with festivals and memorial days that take place at synagogues around the county by publicizing events through JCoOC email communications and social media.
