You choose to say yes to a synagogue that instills the values, education, and love of Judaism in our children. By joining the WJC you choose Jewish for the next generation.
 
Community and Connection
The ties that bind us to our Jewish identity are different for each of us.  We live at a unique moment in Jewish history.  Our community welcomes all who are proud to be Jewish, who want to express themselves as Jewish, or are willing to discover their Judaism.  WJC has created a warm, safe and loving environment to be among and associate with others who share Jewish culture, ideals and values and want to propagate these on to future generations.  At WJC the opportunities to engage and be part of a dynamic, exciting, and growing community are numerous.  Join the WJC so that we fill our collective souls with Jewish connection, love and meaning. 
 
Education and Spiritual Expression  
At WJC we strive to build a literal and figurative sanctuary.  We have built a fantastic and warm early childhood education program to start our littlest ones on the path to lifelong Jewish learning - from exploring our Jewish values and culture, to learning the alphabet and how to get along in our world.  Our religious school teaches our children about ancient and modern Jewish history, Israel, the Holocaust, life cycle events and helps strengthen their Jewish culture and values.  For our young adults through seniors, we offer educational programming to increase our spiritual connections to each other, to Israel, and to G-d.   We support all of our members on their individual and communal Jewish journeys throughout their lifecycle stages. We work together to define  the meaning of tradition and how it can affect our daily lives, as we seek the highest reaches of Jewish education and spirituality. 

  

Thank you for considering joining us on this meaningful Jewish journey by making the WJC your Jewish home!
