    Sermon - Rabbi Ethan Witkovsky: Reaching for the Moon - July 25, 2020

    Sermon - Rabbi Ethan Witkovsky: Reaching for the Moon - July 25, 2020

    Over the course of our history, we’ve gone from the moon landing to shuttering the space program; from the destruction of the Temple to the creation of a new religion. Do we reach for the stars or keep our feet on the ground? Each day brings new possibilities and a new chance to choose our direction.  For more information about services and programs at Park Avenue Synagogue, visit our website at https://pasyn.org.

    Archive – Bella Abzug: A View from Congress (1975)

    On December 13, 1975, during a Shabbat service honoring the Sisterhood (a predecessor of the Women's Network), the Honorable Bella Abzug addressed the PAS congregation with "A View From the Congress." These remarks included her thoughts on Israel and the Middle East, Soviet Jewry, Women's Rights, concerns of poverty, and the aftermath of Watergate. We honor her memory this week on what would have been her 100th birthday (July 24). We hope you enjoy this piece of PAS history. More information available at www.pasyn.org or follow us @parkavesyn or https://www.facebook.com/parkavenuesyn

Great Podcast

I truly enjoy your podcast. I live in eastern NC and excluding Wilmington, NC (which is a 6-hour round-trip drive), there are only 2 operating synagogues in the entire region ONE SUGGESTION: I’ve had to dump the iOS native podcast app after 15 months of misery following an Apple update. As a result I have moved my 100+ podcasts to the “Podcast App” (free app, blue icon). Thus far, YOUR podcast is the only one that I have not been able to locate on my new app. Please have The Park Avenue Podcast added to the podcast line-up for the Podcast App. Thanks!!
