Adat Reyim Vision Statement

 

Introduction

Adat Reyim means a "community of friends." Founded in 1981 by a small group of families to provide a warm, spiritual Jewish home for the local area, our congregation of close to 300 families from increasingly diverse backgrounds offers religious, social, and cultural activities geared for both youth and adults. From its humble beginnings, Adat Reyim moved into its current building in 1991 and completed a substantial addition that opened in the fall of 2002. Under the leadership of Rabbi Bruce Aft, our unaffiliated Progressive Conservative congregation has honored Jewish tradition while reflecting the needs and concerns of modern society.

Vision Statement

The congregation's vision is to develop, with strong rabbinic leadership, a deeper sense of Jewish community for all congregants through a participatory congregation that offers a wide range of opportunities for religious, spiritual, educational, and social growth. We will continue to build upon our warm atmosphere and inclusive outreach to all individuals and families as we continue to grow and mature. Our vibrant congregation will strive to become more involved with local, national, and worldwide secular, interfaith, and Jewish communities, including support for Israel, and will strive to achieve Tikkun Olam, or repairing the world, through social action.

Adat Reyim will maintain its strong emphasis on Jewish education, values, and social opportunities to meet the needs of our youth within our congregation and in the broader Jewish community. We will continue to support our children and young people as they assume leadership roles in these contexts.
