Organization Description - As the only synagogue in a wide geographic area, we welcome and support all those who cast their lot with the Jewish people, regardless of prior knowledge, background or orientation. We offer religious, spiritual, educational, cultural and community services and programs. We celebrate Shabbat and all holidays in our historic downtown building as well as in beautiful outdoor locations. Our educational programs appeal to beginning and advanced learners, and our cultural programs range from the music of Ladino culture and theater nights to Israeli film festivals and visits to a variety of Jewish and non-Jewish sites of interest.

Our Services: Spring and Fall: Sat. 9:15 AM Torah Study followed by 9:45 AM service (concludes about 11:45). Friday nights are sometimes at 6 PM with dinner, sometimes at 8 PM. In summer and winter months we offer either a Friday night OR a Saturday morning, but not both.

What is PJ Our Way?



PJ Our Way offers the gift of exceptional books with Jewish themes to kids ages 8½-11 – books that they choose themselves!
Monthly Choice

Every month, from the 1st – 10th, kids visit this website to choose a book from a selection of four high-quality titles that have been reviewed by a panel of PJ educators, parents, and kids. That's 12 free books a year! To make the choice easier, every title offered comes with a synopsis and author bios, ratings and reviews, and video trailers. Kids can also take polls and quizzes, participate in monthly interviews and challenges, and comment on blog posts.
Parent Input

On the Parent Blog, parents are invited to read about each book and find suggestions for family conversations. These blog posts give parents tools to help children make book choices that are appropriate for them.
A Safe Website

The PJ Our Way website is a safe place where kids can choose books, write reviews, and share ideas with others from around the country. All content on the website is moderated by PJ educators.
Design Team

Every fall, members of PJ Our Way may apply to be part of our national Design Team. Design Team members have early access to PJ Our Way books and create videos and reviews for the website. To become more involved with writing reviews and blogs, connect with us at [email protected]
