Holding Hands, Holding Hearts
“Although this pandemic may have slowed the world down, it has inspired us here at Park Avenue Synagogue. It has motivated us to enhance and accelerate our offerings, so that we can continue to be the place, the community, you can always turn to. We will adapt to do whatever it takes, in the words of our mission, to: ‘inspire, educate, and support each other towards living passion-filled Jewish lives.’”
Every year at Kol Nidrei, the PAS Chairman speaks from the bimah, asking our community to step up and support our shul. We ask the same again this year. Please make Park Avenue Synagogue’s Kol Nidrei Appeal a philanthropic priority.
Your generosity is what allows our team to lead worship, educate our children, and do good in our city and our world. Together, we are building our people’s future.

We Are a Kehillah Kedoshah
“As we gather this High Holiday season in our renovated campus, we have much pride in our new buildings, which reflect our passion and commitment to each other and our future. But when I look around, I see more than a beautiful campus (with a huge punch list). I see a steadfast commitment by a sacred community to its values, working hard to fulfill our mission to ‘inspire, educate, and support each other toward living passion-filled Jewish lives.’”

If Not Now, When?
“So why do I stand in front of you? We are a thriving community. We are the Association of the Righteous, raising the bar to achieve excellence in every aspect of our institution, and doing our best to lead meaningful Jewish lives and elevating those around us. Our collective generosity is needed to enable this great work to continue at our Park Avenue Synagogue. As Hillel said, ‘If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am (only) for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?’”
