November 6, 2018 - The Mother Lode Jewish Community will be conducting a Kabbalat Shabbat Service on evening of Friday, November 16th, in Columbia. It will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a 'meat/parve' potluck dinner followed by a lay led service.
Then on Friday, December 7th, our annual Chanukkah Celebration will take place in Murphys beginning at 5:00 p.m. This annual gathering, taking place this year on the 6th night of the eight-day festival, is a casual, fun evening for families and adults of all ages.
