The AARC is an open and welcoming Jewish community. Our membership is diverse and inclusive. We are Jewish and interfaith families, couples and individuals all from a wide variety of Jewish traditions, as well as non-Jews exploring Judaism. We are people with a variety of racial and ethnic heritages and sexual orientations.

Our culture encourages an open minded approach to Judaism. A core tenet of Reconstructionism is that “the past has a vote, not a veto.” AARC members actively explore and debate Jewish beliefs and practices, balancing a respect for traditional Jewish teachings with the responsibility to interpret them in the light of our contemporary values. We are affiliated with Jewish Reconstructionist Communities.

The Jewish teaching of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) infuses our intentions and practices. It is reflected in our social and environmental action projects as well as in our mitzvah opportunities.
