Elul at PSJC

Join with members of PSJC for the entire month of Elul in a series of Zoom-based sessions for people of all ages and interests. Together, we will create sacred space, learn to braid challah, blow shofar, sing, explore liturgical highlights, do the work of social justice, and prepare for the New Year together.


Below are zoom sessions throughout the month of Elul that we are looking forward to sharing with you this year. Join us from wherever you are. We look forward to seeing you!
