Our Mission: Atid is a caring, innovative community for 20s and 30s to connect with one another and celebrate Jewish life in Brooklyn.
Our Vision: Part of the multigenerational family of Park Slope Jewish Center, we strive to build a community that is relevant to our questions and accessible to our dreams. One-to-one relationships are at the heart of what we do. We love to spend time with one another, share meals, engage in soulful study and prayer, and create change through social justice. Drawing from diverse backgrounds, we are driven by new ideas and old traditions that take shape in an ever-changing world.
Membership: Everyone who comes to an event or program is automatically part of the Atid community. We don't have a formal membership application, nor is membership at PSJC required to participate. Many of us have chosen to become PSJC members to help sustain a vision of Judaism that is accessible, meaningful, and relevant for us in times of joy and sadness. If you feel moved to join or make a donation to PSJC, please contact Rabbi Carie Carter. Confidential arrangements are always made with the greatest care and respect, and PSJC membership is available regardless of one's financial means.
Shabbat Lunch with Rabbi Carie!--On January 12 mingle with other ATID members and share a shabbat lunch with us at the home of Rabbi Carie Carter.

RSVP to PSJC's Rabbinic Fellow, Aaron Weininger by Sunday, December 4th and let him know what you're bringing. If latkes or a home-baked dessert, email your recipe by that date so we can create a free mini-cookbook for all to take home.

Making Donuts and Having a Party!--On Sunday, December 9, we celebrated Hanukkah with ATID and learned how to make Suganyiot with former chef and current PSJC rabbinic intern Benjamin Resnick!

Bring your questions, insights, and friends to our sukkah as we think about what inspires our commitment to social justice and our visions for change in the world. Thursday, October 13th, 7:00 pm
Light Up the Night!

We'll be warming our souls with good music and our bodies with delicious comfort food. We're happy to take suggestions if you have a favorite vegetarian dish. Feel free to bring a beverage of your choice, or just bring yourself, significant others, and friends. Musical instruments and favorite camp/folk songs are welcome too. Address will be provided upon RSVP to email@example.com. Please RSVP by Tuesday, January 17.
Join ATID: Brooklyn Jewish 20s and 30s for Super Bowl Sunday on February 5, 2011. For some it's about the game, for others it's the commercials. And for many of us the food and friends, old and new, are what make it a great tradition. Come enjoy a free dinner of vegetarian subs, onion rings, french fries, drinks, and plenty of snacks to keep you full in front of the flat screen. We'll start the evening with dinner & light learning at 6pm with ATID chair Lizzy Lovinger, before kickoff. RSVPs are much appreciated, but not required, so we can plan accordingly. If you're coming, please email Aaron Weininger and the address will be provided.
