A place of Jewish worship...learning...and assembly.
Our focus is to cultivate a caring, inclusive community
in the spirit of liberal Judaism.
PRS is again holding in person services. Come join us!
Thanks to Rabbi Helaine Ettinger and the PRS Board we have come through what we fervently pray is the worst of the pandemic. We are so pleased to tell you that our first two in person events – a beautiful outdoor service under St. Mary’s tent
on June 19 brought joy to all those who came; and we held our annual meeting and celebratory picnic on June 27. Thank you to all who brought their favorite dishes to share and smiles to match. The 27th was our opportunity to thank Rabbi
Helaine for the compassion, love, and insight she shared with us all during the worst of the coronavirus.. She provided comfort and helped us reduce our anxieties and fears, and kept us together as a community through zoom High Holidays, zoom Shabbat services, and adult education classes and more. PRS presented her with a gift.
We also took this opportunity to remember our friend and Board treasurer Barry Skura of blessed memory. Barry was passionate about life, and brought his love of education, his joy in hiking, and his concern for those less fortunate to our
community and nation. We remember him by creating the Barry Skura Education
fund in his memory.
Rabbi Helaine Ettinger
We invite you to join us for our next service Saturday, July 31 st at 10 AM. Most of our events will be in person, but we have discovered the benefits of zoom for bringing us together as well. Our first zoom Shabbat will be Friday, August 27.
Join us for some conversation, prayers, and bring your wine and candles!
