These core Jewish values inform and permeate all aspects of life at Kol Tzedek. They are aspirations for us to reach toward, to help us be a kehillah kedosha, a holy community.
The Kol Tzedek community "exists" wherever and whenever participants gather to meet, examine, organize, rally, discuss, study, or pray.
Our meaningful prayer experiences, which utilize music and text, help us transcend our daily lives and renew ourselves for the work of tikkun olam.
We engage in a dialogue with our ancestors and bring the Torah's wisdom to bear on contemporary issues.
We seek to "do justice, love goodness, and walk humbly with the Divine" (Micah 6:8).
(In the Image of the Divine):
Our community seeks to build itself through diversity, spanning religious observance, Jewish background, age, class, race, and sexual orientation.
(Generosity of the Spirit):
All participants are invited to offer their unique talents and passions in building the community.
Home hospitality is an integral part of our vision for an intimate, relevant Judaism.
Kol Tzedek community members shape and sustain our community through volunteerism.
