PJC Response to the COVID-19 Health Crisis

The PJC is proud to have moved our community on-line
during this unprecedented situation.
Please join us for on-line classes, t'fillot (prayer) opportunities,
and other creative programming while our building remains closed.

In accordance with an executive order from Governor Cuomo, the PJC building is currently closed. We look forward to opening our doors again as soon as it is safe to do so! We have a wealth of virtual offerings and hope to "see" you soon on Zoom.

While our physical building is closed, our staff members are working remotely and are available: 

Rabbi Alex Salzberg, cell (917) 680-5343,
Education Director Ana Turkienicz, cell (914) 439-4983,
Office Manager Julia Coss, 

Our Learning Center is now conducting virtual classes! All Learning Center families should have received notification and instructions.  For more information, please contact: Education Director, Ana Turkienicz at

Rabbi Salzberg and the PJC continue to offer a variety of programs, both via Zoom and Facebook Live.  Please refer to our Weekly Announcements for links to these educational and service offerings.

Please let us know if you are in need of assistance of any kind or know of anyone who is in need. Kol Yisrael arevim zeh bazeh -- all of Israel is responsible for each other.  Help us to help you by keeping us in the loop. Whether you need someone to talk to, or groceries/medicine delivered, or have a private pastoral matter to discuss, we are here for each other, even if we are not in the same room.

The Rabbinical Assembly's Committee on Jewish Law and Standards has published "Protect Your Family from Corona Virus" and has posted a Google doc with URLs to live-stream Shabbat services.

Blood Donors Urgently Needed

New York Blood Center (NYBC) Urgently requests that healthy donors make appointments to help maintain the region's blood supply at this critical time.

Around 75% of our incoming blood supply was interrupted when schools, businesses and religious institutions closed due to the coronavirus outbreak. In response, they have increased capacity at their donor centers by extending hours and opening for extra days each week.  These modifications will provide controlled, safe environments for healthy donors.   In addition, the U.S. Surgeon General -- Dr. Jerome Adams -- encourages people to donate blood during the coronavirus crisis: "You'll feel good about it, and you'll be helping your country and community  during this crisis. And you might even save a life." 

Healthy individuals are needed to step up and donate blood; it is vital for patients in need of life-saving blood transfusions!  The NYBC asks that you encourage colleagues, friends and the community to make an appointment donate blood if they are able.  Potential donors can:
