During the 50 plus years at our synagogue, we have had joy, sadness and illness while we have always had and felt our PJTC community there for us. Raising our family, we have recognized the importance of the wholesome values our children have gained growing up at PJTC. Participating in our synagogue has offered opportunities to search further into my Judaism, encourage growth in personal leadership skills, join a variety of activities and build long lasting friendships.

PJTC offers a very welcoming environment. People from different backgrounds, different forms of Jewish practice, different family structures and different ways of identifying with Jewish traditions. It has given us a Jewish home and a Jewish community for ourselves and our children. A place for learning, a place for connection, and a place for our children to see themselves as part of a broader community.
