"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?" – Hillel

Reform Judaism establishes that Judaism is current and relevant, not an heirloom.

  • Gain support and comfort in times of difficulty or loss
  • Be counted in a relevant way to ensure Jewish survival and continuity
  • Have the opportunity to help others
  • Support the State of Israel
  • Get involved in a vibrant community

We comfort each other during difficult times and celebrate each other’s joys.
