Who We Are
From Shabbat dinners to Tu B'shvat seders, High Holiday services to Purim Shpiels, Pleasantville Community Synagogue flourishes via the wonderful work of volunteers. Joining a committee is an excellent way to build (or rebuild) friendships, to learn something new, or to simply feel good about taking part in perpetuating a sacred community.
Please look at the list of committees and events that follow and contact the committee chair with your interest or to ask questions. Your community, your heart and your soul will thank you.
You can also e-mail info@shalomPCS.com or call the synagogue office at 914-769-2672 and leave a message for any of the chairs.
