This is an exciting time for JCPSC! After a day long retreat, attended by the individuals listed below, on Sunday, July 9th, our group made several decisions regarding our upcoming year's programmatic offerings. 

In our quest to provide, you, our members and community with the most meaningful and impactful programs we decided to focus the coming year's programming on three areas;


Field-Building Forums and 

Our Annual Awards Dinner.

The three areas are based on our survey results (here) along with JPRO's survey results (a national organization that we are affiliated with). 

The three groups are currently set up for meetings from now through August 17th to make initial plans for the year, with a joint planning meeting involving all three groups on August 17th.

Please join us when we re-convene on Thursday, August 17th at 6:00pm at Temple Beth Am in Los Angeles to discuss the findings of the three groups and calendaring of the remainder of the year.

Finally, our planning group, along with many leaders in our community, have determined NOT to move forward with our conference on Thursday, October 26th this calendar year. We will return to putting the Conference back on the calendar later next year.

In the meantime, we want to acknowledge and thank our dedicated leadership for attending, re-shaping and re-imagining with us! They are:

Alexi Biener

Jenna Fields

Melissa Garai

Jillian Katz

Jodi Berman Kustanovich 

David Levy 

Lois Weinsaft

Rhoda Weisman  

If you would like to be involved in these efforts in our leadership group and to RSVP to the August 17th meeting, please call or email: Emily St. Lifer, JCPSC Director, 323-510-6133 or   

Please keep your eyes and ears open for
