About Us
Mission: 

Our Values
Our values define who we are and how we work. We hold ourselves accountable to these pursuits each and every day as we demonstrate what an authentic and dynamic Judaism looks like.

We thrive in the tension of old and new
Balancing tradition and modernity is a dance, which ignites innovative ideas—those that shape our work to strengthen kehillot and those that influence how we live meaningfully as Jews today.

We find unity in diversity.
A range of viewpoints and backgrounds—religious, racial, ethnic, sexual, socio-political—strengthens us all. We celebrate our differences and believe that those differences make our wholeness possible.

We are dedicated to lifelong Jewish growth.
It is our imperative to ensure that Jews at every age have meaningful opportunities to learn and grow—through traditions, study, Torah, prayer, and mitzvot - and to feel inspired to take action, serve the world, and connect to God and a higher purpose.

We act with integrity and strive for excellence.
Our success is defined by the success of our partners. We are accountable to each other, to our kehillot, and to the larger Jewish community, which means being responsive, communicating honestly, and always doing our best work.

We are part of something larger than ourselves.
Our connections to the Jewish people in North America, Israel, and around the world strengthen us intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually, and active collaboration among sacred communities benefits every kehilla and the larger world.

Where We Are
Our network of nearly 600 congregations extends across North America and includes kehillot in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Congregations are divided into seven geographic districts, each led by a dedicated Kehilla Relationship Manager (KRM) who provides grassroots support and acts as your liaison with USCJ.
