Mission

We create radically inclusive spaces for families with kids, couples and single people, queer and trans people, interfaith families (Jewish adjacent), Jews of color, Jews from many religious and secular backgrounds, and anyone interested in exploring and experiencing Jewish life. We value Jewish spiritual practice and community, focusing on engaging, educating, and empowering people across the spectrum. We are re-invigorating Judaism for the 21st century and leading people toward more purposeful, more connected, and more inspired lives.
