Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

Prepared by the DEI Task Force

One of our six guiding synagogue values is b’tzelem elohim/inclusivity. The core of this value is that all of humanity is created in the divine image. All reflect the divine – regardless of race, religion, gender identity, sexual preference, physical ability, economic situation, political persuasion, or other perceived difference. As there is one divine in the universe, so too is there one humanity on earth, all of whom have inherent worth. 

Our synagogue will be a welcoming community at which people do not experience othering. We acknowledge that we do not currently live in the community that we are envisioning, but that we will work to transform our community so that it will become so. Priorities need to be established because the work to do is vast, and we have decided to prioritize anti-racism as the first initiative in this effort. As that area experiences success, other areas will be addressed.
