UJA@PAS promotes cooperation and collaboration between the synagogue, UJA-Federation of New York, and its many beneficiary agencies. Through mitzvah projects, speakers and other special events, our goal is to promote a synagogue culture that encourages gemilut hasadim (acts of loving kindness).
We are proud to collaborate with UJA and provide social service, communal engagement, and mitzvah project opportunities to our community.
For more information about UJA@PAS, contact committee co-chairs Robin Kaplan or Rochelle Ludwig, or staff liaison, Mara Bernstein.

For an intensive and ongoing experience, students in grades 9–12 can apply to be part of the Philanthropic Advisory Council for Teens (PACT), an opportunity to meet Jewish teens from all over New York and to take a deeper look at the process of fundraising and allocation through a Jewish lens.
