Mittleman Jewish Community Center 6651 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland, OR 97219

Join Jews Next Dor and Moishe House to gather for Good Deeds Day on April 2nd! The young adult community has chosen to attend: “Pack Lunches for Kids in Need”. We will help pack sack lunches for more than 225 low income kids. This is coordinated by NE Portland Backpack Lunch Program and Portland Jewish Academy.

You can sign up for any Good Deeds Day event, but we will be focusing on: “Pack Lunches for Kids in Need.”

To register you must use this link. Replying to the Facebook event will not sign you up. You can enter “JND” as the organization you are volunteering with. Note that there is limited space, so we recommend signing up soon.


JND April Pizza Shabbat!

Friday, April 7, 7:30pm
Congregation Beth Israel 

Services will be held by Sarah and Rabbi Joseph and with Rivkah on the drums. There will be a mix of traditional prayers and some fun songs for everyone to enjoy. Afterwards we will walk to the Silver Dollar to enjoy our last bits of chametz (bread) before Passover. Pizza on us!


Moses and Macaroons

Thursday, April 13th 7-8:30
NE Portland

We all know dessert has to be creative on Passover, so you always end up making something super fabulous to make up for not have any yummy leavened food. Come bring your favorite Passover dessert and chat about how cool Moses was. Discussion will be lead by Rabbi Joseph, at her house in NE Portland. Please message us for the address.


JND April Happy Hour
