Pastoral Zoom Sessions

Rabbi Leener is committed to bringing a dose of Torah, connection, and pastoral assistance to the PHS community as we grapple with the uncertainty of what lies ahead, and as we physically distance ourselves from large gatherings. You do not need to be alone in this. All you need to do is virtually show up. Please reserve a time here.

Rabbinic Discretionary Fund for COVID-19

As you know, these times are causing extreme financial hardships. As a way to support our direct and larger community Rabbi Leener is asking for additional donations to distribute to people in great need as a result of the virus. The money will be going directly to these individuals. Please donate here, and specify that the gift is being made for relief funds.  Tizku Lamitzvot!

Community Support - Goods and Services

If you are seeking assistance, please feel free to reach out to anyone on the list directly. Questions may be sent to
