Mission Statement of The Park Synagogue
As a modern Conservative synagogue, we will provide our members the opportunity to engage in Jewish learning, practice Jewish values and experience Jewish spirituality and community, so that our members' lives and the lives of those we touch are enriched.
Rabbi Joshua Skoff engages in interactive services at Park, a place where dialogue and study occurs during the service itself. Congregants of all ages are involved in services, both in study and worship, and prayer is not a passive experience.
Our youth programs including Shabbat Club, Youth Shabbat Service, and an educationally integrated Religious School are very popular.
Our Adult Education series including weekly Bible Study, Talmud Study, Hebrew Language Study, and Family Education draw large audiences with various backgrounds.
Feeling comfortable with each other and with Jewish life has become the hallmark and theme as Park continues its excellence as a religious community. We have a vibrant and active membership of all ages who find meaning and commitment to Conservative Judaism at Park Synagogue. Our doors and hearts are always open to our members and we encourage those of you looking for a spiritual family to consider ours.
The modern worshipper needs a relationship with his congregation that is personal and allows for participation and involvement. Park is a leader in these areas
