Our congregation is committed to the pursuit of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world, through a commitment to social justice.
Informed and supported by the work of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) and its Religious Action Center, we are committed to education, advocacy, and action. We have expressed our commitment to these goals through our participation in the URJ’s Brit Olam, an action covenant for social justice.
