Please Join us for CRC's Annual Meeting on May 4

What's Your "Why?"

At CRC we aspire to become a Visionary Congregation. Studies have shown that the difference between ordinary and extraordinary congregations includes:

A participatory culture that results in inspirational experiences that infuse meaning into people’s lives.

At CRC we have many inspirational leaders. As part of our 30th Anniversary celebration we’ll have 30 inspired individuals share their Why? answer with you.

You’ll also have a chance to meet our new board members and staff, and we’ll close out the afternoon with a medley of CRC songs.

Your presence adds meaning to lives of those around you. Please join us on May 4 at 1:00 pm.

The 2014 Tikkun Olam Survey is Here!

As we continue to look toward CRC's future, we want to hear from YOU.  The 2014 CRC Tikkun Olam Survey will help us identify and create the opportunities for tikkun olam – repair of the world – that matter to CRC members. Even if you are a new member and/or have yet to participate in Tikkun Olam activities, we want your opinion!  Please click here to fill out the survey by Friday, May 9, and you will be entered in a drawing to win one of four loaves of our famous CRC challah.

Your Library: Our Sifriat Shalom

CRC Library Catalogue

Looks like every other link? Yes, but this one is the key to our on-line catalog of books. You can check by author, title or subject matter to see what books we own and which of them are available for check-out, i.e. “IN.”  The option to reserve items on-line is  not yet available. Try it. See what we have and visit the library when you are here.

Unfortunately, this link only works outside the CRC building.
