Or Rishon_from_Rachel

We are a spirited and spiritual community of people whose lives are enriched by our connection to Judaism and to one another. For nearly 30 years, we've gathered in the eastern Sacramento valley to learn, celebrate, pray and grow together.

We are newly-weds and empty-nesters, toddlers and elders, doubters and the devout. We are the non-Jewish partners and the newcomers to Judaism; we're those revisiting the comfort of our childhood rituals and those searching for something that might have been missing since then.

1-Laura ChainI am Laura Emily Chain and I will celebrate my Bat Mitzvah May 3rd, 2014. I hope you will come join me for my celebration and learn more about my Torah Portion Leviticus, section emor. (21:16-21)
I love playing Tennis, hanging out with my friends and playing my Clarinet in the Silverado Middle School Jazz and Concert Bands. My Mitzvah Project involved the musical group I am in "Fantasia Fantastic" going to Senior Centers and performing music. I spent time getting to know a lot of the Seniors in our community and listening to their great life stories. Some of them rarely get visitors so it was really nice to spend time with them.
1-Jonah portrait colorShalom, my name is Jonah Platt. My Bar Mitzvah is on April 5. I'm in 7th grade at Orangevale Open K-8 School. In my free time, I enjoy playing baseball and basketball. For my Mitzvah project I volunteered at the Special Olympics, which is a way for kids and teens with disabilities to play all kinds of sports. Please come join my family and I for my Bar Mitzvah.
