Our second annual Shabbat celebration together at the Park. We'll bring rice and beans and chips and salsa to share! Bring some snacks to share and a yoga mat - Cantor Beth is leading. Relax and enjoy! We are at Polliwog Park, Tables P7 - between the play structure and MB Middle School. Park in the MBMS lot (entrance on Redondo Ave b/W 15th & 18th) and walk over. Shabbat is a day different that the rest, a special day, a day of rest. How Jews observe shabbat varies depending on their community, beliefs and customs. Tryout a new way for CTJ come to ShaParkit.
CTJ is privileged to host Israeli Gidon Bromberg and Jordanian Munqeth Mehyar, two of the directors of Ecopeace an organization cooperating at the grassroots and national level between Israelis, Palestinians, and Jordanian. Ecopeace works on water issues such as:
Grassroots community activism on ‘environmental peacemaking’
Work to rehabilitate the Jordan River - the river holy to Christianity, Judaism, and Islam and yet woefully polluted and debilitated today.
Effort to develop a cross-border “Peace Park” on an island in the Jordan between Israel, Jordan, and the Palestinian Authority.
Efforts to save the Dead Sea
Last year we had goats! What will it be this year?
We 're overjoyed to say we have outgrown the one available room (such a problem!) so we're moving our Children's Programming to CTJ.
Free to the public - geared to ages 0 - 7
