PSC’s Homecoming – A Story

Once upon a time, in a not so far off land, four suburban dwellers had a dream of a haimish kingdom on the North Peninsula. B’yachad (together), this group of honorable, learned provincials came together in December of ‘67 and formed a kehillah (community) in which to share Torah (learning), Avodah (prayer), and Gemilut Hasadim (Acts of Kindness). As Peninsula Sinai Congregation grew, we needed a bayit (home) of our own. In 1979, we secured an enchanted castle in which to share Shabbat Kol Ha-Neshama (the voice of our souls).

 

PSC helps people in their spiritual quests for God, meaning, and fellowship, and thus the kingdom and castle have grown over generations. Our Tefillah (prayer experience) and Kesher (connections) are strong. Our spiritual derekh (path) is clear, but our physical petach (entry way) is no longer considered adequate hagana (protection). The next chapters in our story call for us to protect our castle (synagogue) with guards (cameras), moats (fencing), and drawbridges (gates) through the Fund-A-Need at our Homecoming.  

 

With our castle protected, we can freely uplift our kolot (voices) and neshamas (souls) as we fulfill the 613th commandment – writing our own Torah. In chagiga (celebration) of our first 50 years, join us in writing the next chapter of the Peninsula Sinai Story. Come Kings (Men) and Queens (Women), dressed in your best Homecoming Attire. Buy your corsages and boutonnieres and be ready for spiked punch at this ADULTS ONLY gala for the ages. If you’d like, register and bring your Princes (boys) and Princesses (girls) to play with our madrachim (teens) next door.

 

We ask you to support our kingdom now by inscribing your love of our royalty (clergy) and beloved kingdom on parchment (tribute book) that will be saved for posterity and join the simcha (celebration)!

 

Celebrate our community and the writing of our Torah at our Homecoming Dance on March 18, 2018.  Enjoy Dining, Drinking and Dancing while celebrating with our PSC Community. Homecoming is included in members' Flexible Commitment (and only $120 per ticket for non-members to join us) but you need a ticket - click on the "Get Tickets" link below to RSVP.

 

Our Homecoming Gala will include live and silent fundraising auctions to support the many programs at Peninsula Sinai as well as a Fund-The-Need to fund improved security for the Synagogue. Please consider a donation for the silent or live auction including the donation of a skill or group event and please click the “Donate” button below to let us know. 
 

Finally, down the hall from our Homecoming Gala will be a special program for children pre-K - Grade 5, so that young families can join more easily join the party. This is completely separate from the Homecoming Gala. Space is limited and RSVPs are required (via the "Get Tickets" link below).
