To enrich people’s lives with Jewish wisdom and traditions, and inspire deeper Jewish engagement and leadership through meaningful and joyful opportunities for people to connect with one another as part of vibrant, warm and caring communities.
We envision a future where people flourish and their lives are made more meaningful by being actively engaged with Jewish tradition and values. They will have friends with whom to share Jewish experiences, and they will feel empowered to create more dynamic Jewish life in their homes and within community.
- Empowered participation: Participants are prosumers (simultaneous producers and consumers) who co-create opportunities that speak to their needs and interests within a Jewish context. Everyone is actively engaged in helping to build the Jewish community they seek.
- Diversity: Every voice matters. Multiple identities and perspectives strengthen our community.
- Friendship: Social opportunities motivate people to try new experiences and the ties that are formed inspire them to seek additional ways to journey together. Celebrating Jewish life with others greatly enriches and reinforces engagement.
- Ownership: People are empowered to innovate Jewish tradition to make it personally relevant and bring that into their home. Families engage with the everyday world using Jewish ideas, values and texts as a lens to create a living Judaism.
