Lifelong Learning: Vision Statement

w
e at Congregation Emanu-El believe that Reform Judaism encourages an ongoing search for meaning, brings us together as a community, and inspires a journey of learning and living.


At Congregation Emanu-El:
  • Our children and adult members experience Jewish learning as essential and indispensible.
  • When we study Torah, we learn values that are relevant, meaningful and inspiring and that transform our daily lives.
  • We emphasize a whole-person learning experience that engages the intellectual, emotional, physical, social and spiritual dimensions of every student.
  • We create a learning environment that is both an individual and family-centered experience, creating a synagogue community in which we live the Judaism we learn.
  • Jewish learning is open-minded, accepting and pluralistic, respecting the diverse beliefs and ways of living of our congregants.
  • Jewish values imbue all that we do as a community and as individuals.

Reform Jewish learning at Congregation Emanu-El is a way of:
  • Building and strengthening community.
  • Finding one’s place in the historical and developing traditions of Judaism.
  • Awakening to a greater understanding of self in relation to God.
  • Expanding horizons, encouraging action and motivating people to engage in the work of tikkun olam (repairing the world).
  • Empowering us with greater confidence in our Jewish identity.


Jewish Learning at Congregation Emanu-El is…

a challenge,
an inspiration,
a celebration!
“In all that you seek, seek understanding.”

— Proverbs 4:7
