The PTS Mission
Whether in the synagogue, each other's homes, or the world beyond, Peninsula Temple Sholom creates a sacred space for those who are part of it.
We live Jewish values and apply the wisdom of our teachings to modern life through prayer, study and action.
We sustain Jewish culture through communal engagement in lifecycle events, the celebration of Shabbat and holidays, and the pleasure of laughing and learning together.
We strengthen our community by caring for one another and the world around us.
We honor our heritage and build a strong future by fostering connections with the Jewish people in the U.S., in Israel and around the world.
