Dorshei Tzedek is a Reconstructionist Congregation dedicated to creating a caring and inclusive community, and to enhancing Jewish practice and learning in the lives of our members. "Dorshei Tzedek" means "seekers of justice," and as our name implies, we are seekers: of meaningful spirituality, of serious Jewish learning, and of social justice.
Consistent with Reconstructionist philosophy, we are committed to seriously engaging with Jewish tradition, challenging that tradition where need be, and building on the tradition in creative ways. We do this in order to enhance our own lives as contemporary Jews and to perpetuate our bond - and our children's bond - to our heritage. We view education for ourselves and our children as fundamental to Jewish life.
We are a participatory congregation, encouraging all of our members to take an active role in some aspect of our congregational life. Our rabbi is our partner is this endeavor, and is both teacher and participant in our community. We value diversity in our congregation, and welcome all those who share our commitments.
Finally, we affirm the concept of mitzvah as oblication, acting on our Jewish values through deeds of tzedek (social justice) and gemilut chasadim (lovingkindness), both within our congregation and in the larger community.
