Jammin in July 2022!

The Wain Pavilion was swinging on Sunday, July 24 when over 100 people of all ages from Park Synagogue and Cory United Methodist Church got together for “Jammin’ in July’!  Chuck Fink, Roger Kramer, Jim Robenalt, John Webb, and Dave Reich provided the 60’s & 70’s rock & roll oldies, with surprise songs from a Cory quartet.  Everyone went home full of ice cream, good feelings, and smiles!  The event was sponsored by the Park-Cory Connection, a committee of Park & Cory members who plan programs to continue the understanding and friendship between our two congregations.  

Mitzvah Day 2022!

Over 145 people of all ages volunteered in 18 Mitzvah Day projects, as well as made donations to help us purchase supplies and gift cards to show appreciation for our first responders. Together, Park volunteers accomplished so much! Thank you to everyone who participated! Special thanks to Lorie Gelb & Cheryl Kretch, Mitzvah Day 2022 Co-Chairs, and to all the Mitzvah Day Project Coordinators for their vital role in helping all of us make a difference for people in need in our community. 

The Luck of Queen Esther!

The Luck of Queen Esther was with Park during our exciting, loud, and festive family reading of the Megillah. Park celebrated with many of our families and members of our congregation! The Clergy and friends welcomed everyone into the sanctuary for the exciting tale of Queen Esther and how she saved the Jewish People, with lights, music and Ruach. Rabbi Marcus and Rabbi Rosie hand-selected winners of the costume contest and they held a costume parade to show off all of the unique and amazing costumes that were put together.  We give a huge Thank You to The Education Department for all of the hard work that they put into making the megillah reading sessions possible! 


Park's Purim Party was a blast with over 50 families and members from three generations! Outback Ray's Exciting Animal Show started things off and wowed the crowd. Afterwards, Cantor Pisman, Rabbi Skoff and Rabbi Marcus joined us for a Purim sing-along followed by a costume parade, DJ dance party and crafts along with Mishloach Manot snacks to take home. Everyone had a great time and we're looking forward to continuing the celebration later this week. Special thanks to Park Purim Co-Chairs Lindsay Heksch, Erin Shuller and Marcy Young.
