WELCOME TO INTERFAITH FAMILIES

We want you to be part of our community!

 

Adath Jeshurun's Outreach Prin­ci­ples


Based on the principles of outreach by Conservative Judaism's National Keruv Initiative Committee by Rabbi Slosberg in 2008.

As mem­bers of the Con­ser­v­a­tive move­ment, we wel­come all who wish to become involved in our pro­grams, syn­a­gogues, ser­vices, and institutions.

We are com­mit­ted to fos­ter­ing Jew­ish mar­riage and fam­ily life. We offer cou­ples and fam­i­lies the sup­port and resources to cre­ate Jew­ish homes and to prac­tice and grow in Judaism.

We wel­come inter­faith cou­ples. Their lov­ing com­mit­ment to one another enriches us, as does their par­tic­i­pa­tion in our con­gre­ga­tions. We seek to share with them the gifts of our faith, prac­tices, learn­ing, and fellowship.

We embrace and welcome interfaith families. We can help them to strengthen their knowl­edge and obser­vance of Judaism, and to deepen their con­nec­tions to the syn­a­gogue, the Jew­ish com­mu­nity, and the Jew­ish people.

We actively seek to nur­ture and sup­port the spir­i­tual jour­ney of non-Jewish part­ners who join us, to deepen their con­nec­tions to the syn­a­gogue, the Jew­ish com­mu­nity and to the Jew­ish peo­ple.

We joy­ously part­ner with all who join us in cre­at­ing homes rich in Jew­ish tra­di­tion, and in rais­ing chil­dren as learned and com­mit­ted Jews.

The Con­ser­v­a­tive Movement's Outreach Principles


We are com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing a wel­com­ing atmos­phere where you can develop a mean­ing­ful con­nec­tion to Judaism.

Our mem­bers are as diverse as the com­mu­ni­ties in which we live. Nev­er­the­less, we remain deeply com­mit­ted to the pre­em­i­nence of Jew­ish law and tradition.

We are com­prised of vibrant con­gre­ga­tions, sis­ter­hoods, men’s clubs, schools, youth groups, and camps through­out the world.

You’re invited to:


Feel at home.
Enjoy our friendship.
Find the sup­port you need.
Join our spir­i­tual journeys.
Learn through our edu­ca­tional programs.
Grow through the study of Jew­ish tra­di­tions and texts.
Pray with us and dis­cover the mean­ing of our prayers.
Par­tic­i­pate in mean­ing­ful social action programs.
Expe­ri­ence the joy and the mean­ing of a life of mitz­vah (the reli­gious and eth­i­cal oblig­a­tions for lead­ing a Jew­ish life).

In other words, we invite you to join our community.

Come with us, Learn with us, Grow with us.
Our con­gre­ga­tions embrace the increas­ing diver­sity of the North Amer­i­can Jew­ish com­mu­nity. We have a tra­di­tion of keruv (out­reach and wel­com­ing), that goes back to our ances­tors Abra­ham and Sarah, who would hurry to wel­come trav­el­ers into their tent.

Judaism has a wealth of resources to help you con­front life’s chal­lenges and cel­e­brate life’s joys. We warmly wel­come any­one who shares our inter­est in Jew­ish life built upon our tra­di­tions and adher­ence to Jew­ish law.

We want to share our Jew­ish tra­di­tions, cul­ture, and prac­tices with you.

Whether you are seek­ing per­sonal con­nec­tion, or you want to help your family’s devel­op­ment, we are here for you.
