Kadima is a Progressive Reconstructionist Community that integrates life-cycle and holiday celebrations, lifelong study, and work for social justice in many dimensions. Our diverse community includes interfaith and multicultural families, single adults, and gay and lesbian members.
Reconstructionist Judaism has a progressive, contemporary approach to Jewish life, integrating a deep respect for traditional Judaism with the insights and ideas of contemporary social, intellectual, and spiritual life.
Adult programs at Kadima include explorations of Judaism and Jewish culture, spiritual development, and socal activism.
Education for youth and children:
Beginning with the High Holidays, and continuing through the yearly cycle of major seasonal Jewish holidays and Shabbat observations, Kadima liturgy allows members and visitors to embrace Jewish practices in ways that speak to them. Our celebrations are unique in their warmth and their inclusiveness with respect to a range of Jewish beliefs. Our community and our liturgy welcome, encourage, and support spiritual diversity.
Membership is not merely a ticket to activities--our doors are open to all. Rather, it is a way to support our Jewish community and participate in the service of doing. It is being a part of the mitzvah of helping to create and sustain Jewish life for those who want it, need it, and are enriched by it.
