The Adult Education and Israel Committee are pleased to bring this nine-video lecture series to the PJTC community. Please join us for video lectures featuring Rabbi Donniel Hartman, text study, and lively group discussions as we explore the Jewish values and ideas at the foundation of our relationship with Israel.
The lecture series, led by Rabbi Joshua Levine Grater provides relevant, contemporary approaches to the most urgent challenges facing the Jewish people today.

One of the oddest rituals that our grand tradition has to offer is the ritual lulav and etrog during Sukkot. On each day of the holiday, except for Shabbat, one is commanded to lift up the four species and shake them. Learn how to do this ancient ritual from our Kadima and USY groups! Thanks to Melissa Levy, our amazing youth director, who produced this fun-filled "Shake Your Lulav" music video. This was put together by two of our USY kids and stars many members of PJTC. Look for your friends and special cameo by your clergy!
