What We Believe

Conservative Judaism is authentic. Conservative Judaism is dynamic.

We believe that it is incumbent upon the Jewish people to shape Judaism in every generation by grappling with traditional values and ideas within a contemporary context.

Conservative Judaism is rooted in the wisdom gained at the intersection of heritage and progress. This balance allows Jews to lead truly fulfilled lives; and in an ever-evolving world, provides a message of compassion, enlightenment, and holiness to communities everywhere.

It is an authentic Judaism precisely because it is dynamic.

First Congregation Sons of Israel is a member of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism.
