The Park East Synagogue is located in Pepper Pike on Shaker Boulevard on land originally purchased for the congregation's school. With a growing population, the facility was built to accommodate the congregation moving southeastward from its Park Main site in Cleveland Heights. Both facilities remain in use today. Park East is home for worship, a thriving summer camp program, a religious school with 32 classrooms, meeting facilities and administrative offices for the congregation. The site also is a wetlands restoration effort as part of an agreement to build at the location. This is consistent with the Jewish theme of "repair the world."
