We are a welcoming, egalitarian community dedicated to promoting Jewish life in the Pacific Northwest. We love Jewish history and tradition, and we are carrying on the 4000-year-old story of the Jewish people by building tradition and history of our own. We cultivate awe and gratitude for the bounteous planet we call home, and reverence for the bonds we share with the creatures who share it with us. We passionately affirm the dignity and rights of all human beings. We view it as our sacred obligation to pursue justice and repair the world.
We also take the Jewish tradition of wrestling with Torah and truth seriously. We are not afraid of hard questions, snark, politics, irreverence, or venturing into uncharted territory.
Judaism was built to resist tyrants, care for the vulnerable, and help us experience joy, health, and abundant life even during the most chaotic and troubled times. That's the sort of holiness we practice.
