Welcome to CJCN and thank you for visiting. Congregation Jewish Community North is a warm, welcoming oasis of Judaism...
Shabbat is the cornerstone of Jewish living. At Congregation Jewish Community North, we seek to provide a variety of worship, learning, and immersive experiences for people of all ages, orientations and backgrounds. Most Friday Nights begin with a reception featuring light refreshments, to set the warm and festive mood our congregation is known for. Come a few minutes early to visit and grab a nosh.
FRIDAY NIGHTS at 7:15 p.m. we welcome the Sabbath day in a variety of styles including our monthly FAMILY SHABBAT, inspired by and led with help from our kids, featuring fun themes, songs, stories, and the infectious spirit of youth. THE BAYIT BAND takes the bimah (stage) one friday evening a month as we welcome Shabbat with a full complement of synagogue musicians ready to refresh and restore your soul.
Every Friday night service concludes with ONEG SHABBAT, a celebration featuring more refreshments, sweets and treats to delight just about anybody who enjoys eating or drinking.
SATURDAY MORNINGS at 10:00 a.m. Our SHABBAT@CJCN features worship, song and fellowship centered around the study of the weekly Torah portion and Haftara. This is followed by a traditional Kiddush that features traditional and contemporary foods from around the Jewish world. This could include barbecue. Or falafel. But never barbecued falafel.
The JACQUES C. SHURE RELIGIOUS SCHOOL provides classes and programs for children beginning in PreK and continues through Bar and Bat Mitzvah, culminating in Confirmation. During their upperclass years in High School, our students serve as Madrichim, helping teach and foster strong Jewish identity within their younger siblings and friends.
Our CHALLAH (CHalon L'Atid Houston) program, made possible through a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston, brings together 6th through 8th graders from our congregation with kids from other congregations from around the Houston area for service programs, social events and educational opportunities. It's a great way to make new friends and have fun.
SPRIFTY (Senior Youth Group) is our congregation's affiliate of NFTY, the National Federation of Temple Youth, our High School auxillary. Members participate in social, educational and travel opportunities while developing independence and leadership skills that will serve them as they prepare to take on larger roles in society and within the Jewish community.
URJ/GREENE FAMILY CAMP is more than a summer sleep-away program. GFC is the regional hub of our youth engagement activities and hosts programs locally and statewide. These include waterpark trips, retreats, immersive social action programs and leadership development Scholarships are available so that no teen needs to miss out.
