Our Values

RELATIONSHIPS

We build community and encounter the sacred through relationships.

TORAH

We embrace Torah in all its dimensions as our enduring source for inquiry, discovery, and inspiration.

SPIRITUALITY

We explore spirituality and innovate our traditions of ritual and prayer.

JUSTICE

We pursue justice, in partnership with others, to realize our vision of what the world ought to be.

ISRAEL

We are Ohavei Yisrael, Lovers of Israel, committed to the vitality, peace, and well-being of the Jewish people in Israel and throughout the world.

DIVERSITY

We draw strength from our diversity, and wisdom from all who walk through our open doors.

Do you, or someone you know, need some extra support? Our clergy and our congregation are here to help in times of sorrow and to offer congratulations in times of joy.

At the Annual Gathering in early June, Kathy Weinman (immediate past president) shared with us the Annual Report, which recognizes our congregation's accomplishments and highlights what's to come.
