- Our mission is to be a synagogue that embraces the philosophy and values of Conservative Judaism by providing: -A spiritual community celebrating the richness and traditions of Torah, prayer and life cycle events; -A learning community enriching Jewish knowledge and experience for all ages; and -A caring community encouraging social interaction and Tikkun Olam in order to strengthen ourselves, our families, the Jewish people, and Eretz Yisrael. At Beth Yeshurun, we also have a program that enables newcomers to Judaism to learn the basics of our way of life, our way of thinking about God, and our way of looking at the world. The program is called An Invitation to Judaism, and is coordinated by Rabbi Morgen. The program involves classes that are taught on Sunday mornings beginning in September and continuing through May. One hour is devoted to a topic of Jewish belief, history, or practice. A second hour is devoted to learning the Hebrew alphabet and word pronunciation.
