Resuming In-person Services

April 10, 2021

As the weather warms up, we are very happy to announce that we will resume in-person Shabbat services! We are lucky to have an outdoor space that allows us to meet in person earlier than most of the other synagogues in the area. As we did in the fall, beginning April 10, we will daven in the yard Shabbat mornings with simultaneous Zoom participation. On mornings with b'nei mitzvah, we will give priority to family members to attend in person and ask that others in the community join by Zoom. DETAILS HERE...

Services @ PSJC

At PSJC, we strive to meet our members at their comfort level during this time. While we are resuming Shacharit Services on Shabbat morning in-person with a limited capacity in April, those services will concurrently be available on Zoom. The Spiritual Life page provides a fuller sense of our ongoing practice at PSJC.  Via Zoom we are able to share in Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday night, Shacharit Services on Shabbat morning and Havdalah on Saturday night. Please see the Events Page for times and Zoom links.

Shabbat Shoah

The Shabbat immediately following Passover is a very special day in the PSJC liturgical cycle.  More than two decades ago, members of this community created a special haftarah and selected a special maftir reading to mark the Shabbat prior to Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day.  This Shabbat is known at PSJC as Shabbat Shoah. On this day, we honor survivors of the Shoah, as well as children and grandchildren of survivors.  Download the flyer above for more information and visit our Events page.
