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.
