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.

To learn more about us, please visit our Who We Are page.

HANUKKAH 2020

Hanukkah - also known as "The Festival of Lights" and "The Festival of Rededication" - is observed for eight nights beginning on the Hebrew calendar date of 25 Kislev (this year, that means we celebrate from sundown to sundown on December 10 through December 18). At Hanukkah's core is a celebration of our ancestors' fight against religious oppression and of the Divine miracle that lit the Temple in Jerusalem, allowing Judah and his followers to restore and reclaim it for the Jewish people. The holiday is a symbol of Zionism in today's world as well as a reminder that religious freedom is worth fighting for, protecting and even rebuilding when necessary.

This year, PJTC's community is celebrating in fun and unique ways that provide opportunities for meaningful social and spiritual engagement and keep our community safely physically distanced:

Hanukkah Give & Get - An opportunity to get to know each other and be thoughtful in what we do for each other.

8 Crazy Nights - Eight days of programming designed to help us learn, grow spiritually, celebrate and come together as a community...and to entertain us during a holiday season that may not look quite like it normally does.
