RCJ Rundown for January

RCJ members enjoyed a fun-filled Chanukah season, attending Beth El, Revere Road, and Temple Israel celebrations as well as the official RCJ Chanukah party. Over 30 people gathered to light the menorah, play dreidel and other games, and enjoy delicious homemade latkes with over a dozen toppings. RCJ members also joined together with the Young Professionals of Akron at their annual Holiday Party, which benefited Big Brothers, Big Sisters. Participants raised over $1,000 for families in need to enjoy holiday gifts. RCJ also co-sponsored the first-ever Winter Jubilee, a holiday celebration for young Jewish professionals of Cleveland and Akron, hosted by Fairmount Young Professionals and several other organizations.

To kick off 2019, RCJ will host a Shabbat dinner with special guest Lex Rofeberg, Beth El’s Rabbinic intern. On Jan. 12, we will meet for dinner at Baxter’s, then head over to Lock 3 to ride their new bumper cars...on ice! RSVP to rubbercityjews@gmail.com to reserve your spot today! Not a fan of the cold? Just come for dinner! Then join us on Jan. 30 for “Cards and Crafts.” Play card games while enjoying beverages and snacks at one of the area’s newest craft breweries, Lock 15 Brewing Company. As always, check our Facebook page for updated news and events!
