To accommodate business people working in the Jerusalem Center City area, JCM offers an afternoon “Businessmen minyan.” which enables mourners to recite kaddish for their loved ones. One of the JCM's rabbis is available for private consultations after the minyan.


Shabbat is an island in time which the Kabbalists declared was created by G-d's thought, not by His word. Enjoy your island respite in the sea of spirituality when we offer a Shabbaton with Chasidic melodies, stories, food to make your senses delight and inspirational words of wisdom to awaken your innermost soul.
