Our History

We are motivated by three core Jewish values

  • Yitziat Mitzrayim

    We were redeemed from Egypt; we know what it is like to be the stranger. (Experiential Motivation)

  • B’tzelem Elohim

    We are all created in the image of God. (Theological Motivation)

  • Tikkun Olam

    The world was created imperfectly; we partner with God to repair it. (Existential Motivation)
