High Holy Days 2020

PJTC'S clergy, staff, and lay leaders are excited to celebrate the 2020 High Holy Day season with our community. While we cannot all physically be together, we are committed to creating an engaging experience of virtual togetherness that will remind us all that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. Our team has worked fervently to develop programming filled with the holy moments of connection, reflection, growth, mourning, uplift, and joy that we all need right now. And, we hope that you will share in these moments with us!

As we create further programming and resources, we will share them on our PJTC High Holy Days 2020 web page, so that you may be fully prepared to immerse in this unique spiritual opportunity.

Welcome to PJTC!

PJTC is a 475 family intergenerational congregation based in beautiful Pasadena, California. Our members hail from throughout the San Gabriel Valley area. We have a vibrant religious school, and share our campus with the Jewish Day School, Weizmann Day School, and Preschool, B’nai Simcha.

PJTC has a long history, and is one of the oldest in the area. Over the many years, other congregations have merged with us, which has provided us with a diverse and rich community.

PJTC seeks to include and accept all those who wish to worship, study, or develop cultural or social ties to Judaism and we warmly welcome interfaith, LGBTQ and non-traditional families into our community.

Our religious services are spiritually uplifting with beautiful music, meaningful participation, prayer, study, along with opportunities for connection, followed by a friendly Oneg Shabbat afterwards.

It is our hope that you will want to join us as we continue to build our warm and welcoming community, and participate with us in any number of our extensive programs.

Black Lives Matter: We Shall Not Stand Idly By

On Monday, May 25, George Floyd died in the custody of the Minneapolis police. According to video taken at the scene by witnesses, a police officer knelt on Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and forty-six seconds.  Mr. Floyd, already in restraints, appeared unresponsive after the first six minutes. He was pronounced dead at the Hennepin County Medical Center about an hour later. Four officers involved have since been fired, and one has been charged with third-degree murder. Mr. Floyd’s death is the latest of many cases of African American – mostly men, but also women and children – who have died in encounters with the police in the last few years.

For the past few months, our city, our nation, and our world have struggled with the ramifications of a pandemic and quarantine.  Nevertheless, we must always heed our Torah’s commandment, “You shall not stand idly by the blood of your neighbor.” (Leviticus 19:16)  Coping with the effects of the pandemic does not excuse us from fighting the epidemic of violence that, for years, has claimed the lives of our neighbors.
