Conservative Judaism

Where Contemporary Jews Embrace Jewish Tradition

The Conservative/Masorti Movement represents the passionate and engaged center of the Jewish people. At home in both tradition and modernity, Conservative/Masorti Judaism strives in everything to express and communicate a deep commitment to the values, concepts, and rituals of our tradition. It is equally committed to the values of individual conscience, democracy, equal rights and protection for all humanity and other hallmarks of Western culture to enrich and deepen our lives as practicing Jews.

That tradition not only belongs in the synagogue and the home, but in business or the public marketplace of ideas. Conservative/Masorti Judaism seeks to integrate the best of tradition with the best of modernity. Conservative/Masorti Judaism does this because we believe that integrating the Jewish tradition with our own contemporary culture is the best way to create a vibrant and meaningful form of Judaism for ourselves and our descendants.
