What We Stand For

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

·       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.

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

·       Religious belief is a private matter properly taught in the family.  The state should have no religious functions.  We support the separation of church and state.

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

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