Join Park's New Racial Justice Discussion Group

Racism has unfortunately been a part of the fabric of our community and country for hundreds of years.  As we all know, during these past few difficult months, racism has been even more blatantly evident in our society.  In light of this, Park’s Social Action Committee is forming a virtual Racial Justice Discussion Group.  Members of the congregation are encouraged to join the group to learn and discuss together this important issue. The goal of the group is to better understand the history of and current day presence of racism in our society and see how each of us can help eliminate racism in our lives, in our community, and in our country.   

We will be reading articles and excerpts from books and watching podcasts and movies on our own schedule. The group will then meet on Zoom to discuss them with the help of an experienced group facilitator. We are expecting the group to start in October and to meet for 5 sessions every other week in the evening or on Sunday. Group members will be asked to commit to participating in at least 4 of the 5 sessions.   

The group will be open to Park members only.  We want a broad mix of members of all ages—families with middle school and/or teenagers to senior adults.  Please join us!

To register to join Park’s Racial Justice Discussion Group or  contacting Ellen Petler at epetler@parksyn.org or 216-371-2244 ext. 122.

College Outreach Program

During this year of the pandemic, Park’s College Outreach program will be operating slightly differently than in past years. Since many of Park’s college students may be attending classes virtually from home, we are suspending sending college care packages, at least for the first half of the school year. Instead, Park’s clergy will keep in touch with students, whether at home or away, through special email messages or Zoom visits. We hope to begin to send care packages again when a majority of students are back at their college addresses. In the meantime, please send us your student’s contact information using the form below. It will be important to let us know when your student moves to his/her college address. Please keep us posted! 

Please direct any questions about the College Outreach Program to 
Ellen Petler at epetler@parksyn.org or 216-371-2244 ext. 122.

Please note: All students registered in the Park College Outreach Program also must be enrolled as a Park Young Adult Member.  This membership serves the important purpose of keeping our young adults connected to Park and Judaism at a time when they may not be living in Cleveland.  This membership is for young adult children (ages 18-25) of Park members, and provides the young adult his/her own membership when no longer covered under your family membership.  There is a one-time fee of $72.00  to enroll your young adult as a Park Young Adult Member, that covers the young adult until age 25 or marriage, whichever comes first.  Young Adult Members receive all membership benefits, including a High Holiday ticket, which gives the opportunity to get a reciprocal ticket in another synagogue out-of-town. If you are not sure whether your student is already a Park Young Adult Member, please check with Allison Solomon, Park Membership Director, at asolomon@parksyn.org

Notorious RBG:The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

The Notorious RBG, being exhibited at the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center in Skokie, is a vibrant exploration of Justice Ginsburg’s life and her numerous, often simultaneous roles as a student, wife, mother, lawyer, judge, women’s rights pioneer, and Internet phenomenon. The docent-led tour tells Ginsburg’s story using a dynamic array of videos, archival photographs and documents, historical artifacts, and contemporary art. Based on the book and Tumblr page of the same name, Notorious RBG is the first-ever museum exhibition focused solely on the judicial icon.

Cost: $5 per Zoom square (one or more people can be on same link)
