MLJC Gathering Scheduled

Copperopolis, CA…Happy New Year! The Mother Lode Jewish Community will be starting of 2017 with a “Havdalah and Movie Night” on Saturday evening, January 14th at 5:30 pm at a member’s home in Copperopolis. This will be a potluck gathering that gives those participating an opportunity to think about Jewish life and connect with others in the mother lode. Summer Greenwald-Gonella, the daughter of Rabbi Andra Greenwald and a fifth year Cantorial student at the Jewish Theological Seminary in NYC will be conducting the service. Following the service and potluck dinner, we will enjoy a showing of The Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob, a wild French-Italian comedy made in 1973 described as “one of the funniest, bust-a-gut laughing, most hysterical films ever made”!
