PJCC Guiding Principles
Jewish Life • Chavaya Yehudit
We celebrate the dyamic gifts of Jewish culture, tradition, ethics and community we received from generations before us. We joyfully welcome our role in enhancing these gifts today and for future generations.
Welcoming All • Hachnasat Or'chim
Our house is open wide to all. We embrace the diversity of culture, opinion, religion and identity in our community, and we strive to make the Center an accessible space where it feels safe to be oneself.
Our Community of Family & Friends • Kehilla u'Mishpacha
We are a hub for engagement, dialogue, collaboration and the celebrations that enrich our lives and the community in which we live. We also foster K’lal Yisrael, the unity of the Jewish people, by strengthening our link to the broader Jewish community and the State of Israel.
Wholeness of Body, Mind & Spirit • Shleimut
We respect and nurture each individual’s journey toward wholeness and see our role as a catalyst for wellness, exploration, reflection and growth.
Repairing the World • Tikkun Olam
Each person makes a difference. Together we are responsible for making our community a place where we uphold dignity for all and seek to improve the world through our actions.
