PSJC warmly encourages families and individuals of all ages, gender identity, races, cultural backgrounds, and interfaith couples to join our community. Our members include artists, musicians, graduate students, yoga instructors, bankers, writers, social workers, rabbis, teachers, and more, ranging in age from infancy to retirement. We have families with three generations in the community and individuals who just moved to the neighborhood. We hope you will learn more about our community and our mission, staff, and programming. PSJC Shabbat services and most of our programming is open to non-members. We invite you to visit and learn more! Please introduce yourself to an usher or member of our staff if you are visiting. We are proud to be a "pay what you can" synagogue.

How do I determine the right level of dues for me?
At PSJC, members determine their own dues
Our greatest priority is to welcome everyone who wants to be part of our community. Dues and contributions from members make up 65% of our operating budget. To thrive, to properly maintain our building, and to plan for emergencies, we ask that you choose a dues amount that is as high as possible for you.
To help put dues in perspective, we provide the following guidelines:
Supporting Level--$1,300 per adult member ($2,600 for two adults)
If every member supports our community at this level, we can cover our basic operations. We hope that everyone who can do so will choose to contribute at this level or above.
Sustaining Level--$1,800 per adult member ($3,600 for two adults)
If every member of our community were to give at this level, we could thrive and properly provide for rainy days.
Builder Level--$2700 per adult member ($5,400 for two adults)
This level sustains the community while supporting another member of more limited means.
We recognize that not everyone will be able to contribute at these levels, which is why we invite you to pick a dues amount that is appropriate to your circumstances. Please choose the highest amount you can and, whatever you choose, know that your support is appreciated. PSJC is its members, and we are building this community together.
