Liberal Judaism is the dynamic, cutting edge of modern Judaism. Liberal Judaism reverences Jewish tradition, and seeks to preserve the values of the Judaism of the past while giving them contemporary force. It aspires to a Judaism that is always an active force for good in the lives of Jewish individuals, families and communities today, and equally makes its contribution to the betterment of society.
“Liberal Judaism supports a vibrant and inclusive democracy in Israel, and believes that we best support Israel by encouraging her to address the needs and interests of all her citizens. The UK Task Force has shown exemplary leadership on issues facing Arab citizens, and we are proud to support it in its invaluable work.”
