Do you feel a connection with people through music? Join our growing group of congregants who meet weekly to play guitars and sing. Inspired by the congregational retreat in October, the group meets regularly on Monday nights in the Multi-Purpose Room. We are open to any kind of music we can sing together, from Adon Olam to Frank Zappa. If you know it, bring it. Adults and kids are welcome. No instrument or musical experience needed, just a desire to share music as a common bond.

Photo Essays on the Changing Nature of our CommunityThrough Apr. 20, in the Foyer
Lehrhaus Judaica and Building Jewish Bridges present This Is Bay Area Jewry, a photo essay exhibition showcasing the range of diversity in our community. The exhibition features 17 intimate portraits of individuals and families from a variety of backgrounds and levels of religious observance — from the North and South Peninsulas, San Francisco, Oakland/Berkeley, Contra Costa, and Marin.
The project is a combination of photographs and written profiles, shedding light on the unparalleled San Francisco Jewish community. Each person, couple or family profiled has loved ones who are not Jewish. The reality of Bay Area Jewry is that we are all touched by our non-Jewish family members. We invite you to meet these unique individuals – born Jewish and converts, LGBT Jews, and multicultural Jews all take center stage. Their paths to Judaism and spiritual connections may differ, but they are all Jewish.
Saturday, Apr. 22, 4:00pm

The PTS Mission
Whether in the synagogue, each other's homes, or the world beyond, Peninsula Temple Sholom creates a sacred space for those who are part of it.
We live Jewish values and apply the wisdom of our teachings to modern life through prayer, study and action.
We sustain Jewish culture through communal engagement in lifecycle events, the celebration of Shabbat and holidays, and the pleasure of laughing and learning together.
We strengthen our community by caring for one another and the world around us.
We honor our heritage and build a strong future by fostering connections with the Jewish people in the U.S., in Israel and around the world.
