Gateway Housing Women's Shelter

Preparing and serving meals January 26, and February 23

CRC congregants have organized an opportunity to provide meals to the third house, and the first women's shelter built under the auspices of Gateway Housing First. The program offers 16-18 homeless individuals a secure housing and meal opportunity during the winter months. The sites are staffed by a resident who provides counseling services. Post winter, rooms are provided to a smaller group of residents provided they have an ongoing source of income to pay reduced rent.This is their third year of operation. To contribute to this project through donations, cooking, or serving and enjoying the meals with the residents contact Jane Baker

January University Series: 


Tuesdays in January (except January 3), 7:00 - 8:30 pm at CRC

Join Rabbi Randy for a close read of this important book for these times written by the acclaimed Jonathan Sacks, for years the Chief Rabbi of England. Rabbi Sacks writes in his introduction, “The cure for bad religion is good religion, not no religion, just as the cure for bad science is good science, not the abandonment of science.” You may purchase the books, however, Rabbi Randy will also make sure that everyone has the passages from the book that will be discussed each week. As always, the course will be continuous but each class will also stand on its own. You can come to one, some, or all of the sessions for these adult education classes.
