May 6 Yom HaShoah Program
Join us as we observe Yom HaShoah with our Memorial Candlelighting Ceremony.
Shirley Ranz, child of Holocaust survivors and member of our Congregation, will talk about righteous gentiles. What is it about their character that enabled them to risk their lives and the lives of their own families to save strangers? Rabbi Schweitzer will lead a discussion following Shirley’s talk.
Spring Open Houses
Join us for one of our Spring 2016 Open Houses/Info Sessions (May 1, 11, 15). Rabbi Peter Schweitzer will provide a general orientation to Humanistic Judaism.
Discover our engaging, meaningful secular KidSchool (our Sunday School) and unique cultural Bar/Bat Mitzvah Program. Learn how we celebrate Shabbat, the High Holidays, and other Jewish holidays in a manner that is consistent with our secular Jewish identity.
May 6 Honoring James Ryan

He had his naming ceremony at our Congregation, attended and graduated KidSchool, was a Bar Mitzvah, teacher’s assistant, song leader, youth leader, goto childcare provider, and our musician, all under the roof of The City Congregation. Following his graduation from high school, James will be attending McGill University.
On May 6, we will acknowledge and thank James for sharing his talents and his caring through the years, and wish him well.
