‘… if you would, do not go on without stopping by …  Let some water be brought, and wash your feet.  Rest under the tree.  I will get a morsel of bread for you to refresh yourselves.  Then you can continue on your way.  After all, you are passing by my house.’  Bereishit 18:3-5

At SHJC we see ourselves as Abraham and Sarah, with our tent open to you, typically with something to nosh!  Please join us, even if you are only passing through.  As you will see from this portal, there is much here we offer for you and yours.  Learn about our people and our programs.

We welcome you to study, pray, and serve with us!, Come, Engage, Participate…Belong!

With the holiday season approaching remember to be kind, mindful, and helpful when traveling.  For example, help others with their bags, clean up to make it easier on hotel staff, and always be pleasant, courteous, and friendly.
