Who We Are
PSJC is a diverse, thriving Jewish congregation in the heart of Brownstone Brooklyn, under the leadership of Rabbi Carie Carter. We are a highly participatory, fully egalitarian, liberal Jewish community affiliated with the Conservative Movement. We warmly encourage families and individuals of all ages, gender identity, races, abilities, cultural backgrounds, and interfaith couples to join us in our beautiful synagogue on 14th Street and Eighth Avenue in Park Slope, when we can safely be together, and on Zoom in times when safety requires us to remain physically apart. Our members include artists, musicians, graduate students, yoga instructors, bankers, writers, social workers, rabbis, teachers, and more, ranging in age from infancy to retirement. Please read our Mission and Principles to get a sense of the values and goals that underlie all that we do.
People find many ways to engage and participate at PSJC -- we are a community with room to embrace Jewish life through multiple avenues. For many, the focus is on the spiritual, participating in Shabbat, holiday and festival services and celebrations. For others, it is learning together, about both Jewish and secular topics, whether we are toddlers or have long been retired. Many of us are drawn to "pray with our feet" and actively work towards social justice. And so many of us cherish the support of our caring community, especially during lifecycle events -- both the joyous celebrations of birth, b'nai mitzvah and marriage and the difficult times dealing with end of life and other challenges.
