Updated Friday, December 14, 2018


At it's semi-annual meeting on Nov. 27th, the ICCJ congregation approved several changes to our constitution. The amendments created the possibility of co-presidents, set term limits for officers, added Men's Club to the list of auxillary organizations, created the Ohr Chadash committee to act as liaison to the religious school and made updating adjustments in the operation of a few existing committees.

A full copy of the amended constitution
can be read by pressing on this link.
