Today's Jewish identity is defined by tradition, but viewed through heritage, culture, values, and family. Originally, the principle form of Jewish expression was found exclusively in the synagogue, but the rich traditions of the culture are recognized today through Jewish humor, music, art, literature and food. We keep Jewish identity alive through support of religious, education, and social programs and services that unite our communities with vulnerable populations.
The tradition of "Tzedaka" (charity/charitable acts) is a fundamental part of the Jewish way of life. We respond to humanitarian crises overseas, and collaborate with national Jewish agencies to support those in distress. We support social service programs in Israel. We provide housing, advocacy, food, counseling, and medical relief for the Holocaust survivors living in our Delaware Valley communities.
