The Board of Trustees of Celebration Jewish Congregation (CJC) – Dr. Mike Band, Leslie Dubin, Mark & Sue Greenstein, Josh Grossman and Dan Parvaz – remain committed to continuing the fellowship of our Celebration Jewish community. Our community stretches far beyond the physical boundaries of Celebration, reaching Jewish families from areas outside Orlando. CJC has always conducted services and celebrated Festivals in a welcoming way that made everyone feel at home. Since its founding, CJC has been blessed with spiritual leadership that enabled us to independently conduct High Holy Days services, observe major holidays such as Passover, and conduct occasional Shabbat services at congregants’ residences.
As the Board works collaboratively with our congregants and the community to determine the best path forward to acquiring spiritual leadership, we will continue to rely on each other to observe Jewish traditions. We are also blessed with the support of other congregations in the area such as Congregation Beth Emeth lead by Rabbi Robert Lefkowitz. CJC congregants were invited to participate in Beth Emeth’s High Holy Days services which allowed for many of us to pray together and meet new people who share our beliefs and values. The “Other Congregations” page can provide you with the basic contact and location information to determine the availability of regularly scheduled Shabbat services, Hebrew School, Adult Jewish Education, etc.
If you would like to host a Shabbat or Havdalah service, please contact us to indicate your interest or ask any questions about what it involves. It's easy. We will be happy to help you create an enjoyable event for the local Jewish community.
