BOLD JUDAISM

Welcoming

We treat all who embrace our philosophy as full, equal members - whether or not they were born Jewish, adopted Judaism or simply feel a kinship with our congregation.

Questioning

We find new ideas invigorating rather than frightening. No issue is off limits. No question is considered too challenging or sacrilegious.

Celebrating

We believe that non-Jewish relatives who support members of our congregation should have the opportunity to fully participate in ceremonies and celebrations.

BOLD JUDAISM

Creating

Our ancestors wrote words that spoke to them. We have the right and responsibility to do the same. We say what we mean and mean what we say.

Educating

We teach students to be thinkers who can evaluate and process ideas. Because we embrace diversity, every student feels equal and accepted.

Evolving

As the world changes and we gain new insights into the nature of our universe and ourselves, it is essential that Judaism evolves to reflect these new realities.

BOLD JUDAISM

Searching

 Core to our theological philosophy is that external forces do not solve the problems of our world. We are responsible for our actions, and we each bear responsibility for repairing our world.

Giving

 In a world in which help does not come from elsewhere, we are all responsible for improving the planet and reaching out to those in need.
