This statement developed out of a clarification process in which a representational cross-section of the congregation was brought together to discuss what we understood ourselves to be and what we wanted to see ourselves become. Eventually, the statement was approved by the board of directors and the membership of the congregation. Every year we review the statement, assessing ourselves and our words against each other. The statement is reaffirmed, sometimes with emendation and sometimes not, each year at our May membership meeting.
Our mission is to be an inclusive community of Jews and their loved ones who are pursuing a thoughtful, contemporary Jewish life. We commit to educational, spiritual and religious growth by promoting the study, practice and ideas of Reconstructionist Judaism. We strive to partner with local congregations as well as other faiths to foster a more just and peaceful world.
