    Sermon – Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove: No Surprise–January 9, 2021

    Sermon – Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove: No Surprise–January 9, 2021

    Calling the domestic terrorist attack on the Capitol no surprise, Rabbi Cosgrove argues that as with Pharaoh's Egypt, the degradation of our society occurs incrementally and with the complicity of many. Reversing it will require that we take a stand to denounce hatred and injustice.For more information about services and programs at Park Avenue Synagogue, visit our website at https://pasyn.org.

    Dialogue - Jennifer Stern Granowitz and Erin Beser: How We Talk About Children - January 6, 2020

    In this episode, Jennifer and Erin speak to Pamela Schwartz, Penn Family Early Childhood Center Director, about using respectful language and empowering children to take leadership and responsibility in the classroom and at home. We asked Pamela why kids call out, opt out, or act out in school (particularly Hebrew school). If you're a parent or a teacher, tune in for specific language to help you stay mindful when kids are . . . well . . . being kids. For more information about services and programs at Park Avenue Synagogue, visit our website at https://pasyn.org.

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!!
