Agudas Achim’s Core Values
Agudas Achim aspires to be a traditional, egalitarian, friendly and participatory congregation.
Traditional – seeking meaning in Jewish tradition, and building on that tradition to create meaning for ourselves. Our members are inspired by traditions that connect us with our congregation’s history and with other Jews around the world.
Egalitarian – supporting and encouraging our members, in all their diversity, to participate fully in synagogue life.
Friendly – welcoming each person who appears before us, whether a traveler at morning minyan, a non-Jewish family member, a homeless person at kiddush, etc. We are a warm, close-knit, child-friendly community.
Participatory – engaging members so every member contributes, everyone is needed and everyone feels valued. We recognize our differences create opportunities for, rather than barriers to participation.
