Masorti is traditional Judaism for modern Jews. Our warm, welcoming communities are grounded in traditional practice and Jewish learning, and committed to the values of inclusiveness, pluralism, and open-minded, intellectual inquiry. Our umbrella body, Masorti Judaism, works to support and grow flourishing communities throughout the UK, supports Noam and Marom – Masorti Youth and Young Adults, and provides important services such as rabbinic training and recruitment, leadership development, Bet Din services and high-level Jewish education. Masorti Judaism has always been a Zionist movement. We recognise the centrality of Israel in Jewish life and strive to build a meaningful relationship with the people of Israel, while recognising the legitimacy of a wide range of views about contemporary Israeli politics.
"The Task Force is helping to realise the dream of Israel's founders that the country should offer true equality to all its citizens. Participating in the Task Force has made me appreciate more deeply the special challenges facing Israel's Arab citizens, and the essential work being done in Israel to try to address them."
