Our Philosophy

What We Believe



Judaism is the creation of the Jewish people. All generations are responsible for carrying it forward and adding to it.


A Jew is someone who identifies with the history, people, culture and fate of the Jews.

Power of Community

We believe in the equality and dignity of every human being, and in the power of community.

Separation of Church and State

The state should have no religious functions.  We support the separation of church and state.

Equality, Social Justice and Peace

Only natural forces and human beings are responsible for what happens in this world.  People have the responsibility and ability to solve human problems through striving for equality, social justice and peace.

Freedom and Dignity

The freedom and dignity of the Jewish people must go hand-in-hand with the freedom and dignity of all peoples.
