our mission

 JCOR is a collaboration among six congregations united on one mission: to help newly arrived refugees re-establish their independence, orient to American culture and develop a firm footing in their new home in the United States, and more specifically Washtenaw County. JCOR’s member congregations are Ann Arbor Orthodox Minyan, Ann Arbor Reconstructionist Congregation, Beth Israel Congregation, Jewish Cultural Society, Pardes Hannah and Temple Beth Emeth, with fiduciary support from the Jewish Federation of Greater Ann Arbor. JCOR was established in response to a request from Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County to partner with them in settlement of newly arrived refugees.
