Welcome to Congregation Poale Zedeck

Make a contribution to our congregation


about us:


Located in the heart of Squirrel Hill, Congregation Poale Zedeck (PZ) is a Modern Orthodox synagogue serving Jews of all ages and backgrounds.  Our membership continues to grow, and presently there are over 200 families who are members of PZ.  On an ordinary Shabbat our main sanctuary is filled for services and our kiddush is bustling.  Children of all ages are welcome and youth groups and babysitting are available to serve their age appropriate needs during Shabbat services.  


During the week, PZ offers a full range of adult education for men and women on beginning, intermediate and advanced levels.  Classes include Bible, Talmud, Practical Observance, Rabbinic Responsa, Jewish mysticism, Hebrew language, and contemporary Jewish issues.

The Congregation has an active Sisterhood and Men’s Club.  Both sponsor numerous activities geared to the needs of our membership.  Highlights of the year include the Annual PZ camping trip, Chol HaMoed Sukkot Roller Skating Adventure, and Purim Seudah.  Many other lectures, picnics, and activities are also planned during the year which help create the “PZ Family.”
