Mission and Vision

Our Mission

Or Shalom is a warm, welcoming community of Jews and non-Jews, diverse yet united in the desire to support one another and mend the world. We share a commitment to deep mutual acceptance, progressive values, the spirit of questioning, and a dynamic balance of tradition and innovation in our approach to Judaism. 

 

Our Vision

We are inclusive and value each person.

We seek to bring meaning to ritual, Torah and commandments as we look at Judaism through a progressive and contemporary lens.

We act with lovingkindness toward one another and all who enter, to create a sense of belonging for every person.

We aspire to mend the world through individual awakening, social action and the pursuit of social justice.

We are a learning community for young and old, committed to reflection, questioning and listening.

We engage with one another intellectually, spiritually, musically and joyfully.
