The mission of Congregation Ahavath Sholom is to support a participatory, egalitarian and inclusive Reconstructionist Jewish community. While recognizing the dynamic and evolving nature of Judaism in modern life, we engage with our traditions to inspire our ethical and spiritual growth. We encourage study, prayer, celebration, education of children, acts of caring and social justice.
