Rededication

A Once-in-a-Generation Event
Park Avenue Synagogue
Sunday, December 8 | 3:30 pm

Join our community in rededicating ourselves to eight Jewish values:

Tikkun Olam
Memory
Peoplehood
Tefillah
Music and Art
Lifelong Learning
Israel
Community

We invite you to participate in ongoing PAS programming and flagship events throughout the fall, and engage in activities on your own, to deepen your connection to each value and symbolically earn a candle, as Hanukkah is a time for rededication. Collect your candles along with a Shamash at the Rededication Celebration on Sunday, December 8. Light these commemorative candles in your home on the last night of Hanukkah, reflecting on the warmth of our community’s embrace and the bonds that have built our wonderful new campus, lighting the way to our future.
