JCA Staff Shabbatical – Offices Closed August 22-26, 2022

Aug 22, 2022—Aug 26, 2022


In our tradition, the rest and refreshment that follows creation and generativity is not something added on only when time permits; through Shabbat, we set time aside weekly, remembering that even God, the all-powerful, needed to refresh themselves as part of the creation of the world.


In recognition of the unique challenges of the past year and the kindness, commitment, and skill exhibited by JCA staff, the Board has authorized a one-week “Shabbatical” – a week set aside for respite and rejuvenation.


The JCA will be closed from August 22-26th. We look forward to greeting the new year together when we return!
