MOTHER LODE JEWISH COMMUNITY
YOUR JEWISH CONNECTION IN THE GOLD COUNTRY
Encompassing Amador, Calaveras, Mariposa and Tuolumne Counties
We would like to welcome your interest in our group. Our group has been
formed to serve the relatively small Jewish community of the Mother Lode
area in Northern California (Amador, Calaveras,Mariposa and Tuolumne
Counties). MLJC has actually existed for about 26 years, but is still growing.  
There are many of us in the Mother Lode looking to meet and worship with
other people of our faith.  We now have our own rabbi and two Torahs of our
very own (the first of which was  dedicated in 2003).

Our group currently holds one Shabbat service or other Jewish holiday
celebration each month and sometimes have additional activities.  Our
services are usually held at private homes.  We also try to have adult
education and children's Sunday School classes.  We recently have been
meeting at members' homes.  Since we don't have our own building so
meeting places are always subject to change.   We also try to get together
for all the special Jewish holidays, including the High Holydays, sometimes in
rented space to accommodate a large turnout.  

Our annual dues are pay-what-you-can-afford but we hope it will be at least
$100 per family with additional costs for Sunday School  ($100 yr. for the first
child, $75 yr.  for the second, additional children free).  We usually collect
dues in September before the High Holydays.  We are a nonprofit group
listed as such with the IRS.

Please feel free to
