here's how we think about building jewish community.

Ownership.

Judaism is a covenant. It infiltrates every aspect of our lives. A typical Base program is an intimate gathering, designed to model how each individual can "bring Judaism home with them" – that is, create their own spaces where their personal Jewish identity can flourish.

Pluralism.

No two Jewish stories, families or heritages are precisely alike. We all have different narratives about how we came to live in Jewish community. And the fact that we’re all different doesn’t mean that we need to live out this identity alone. We welcome you to come as you are and bring your story – we want to support you in building the next generation of Jewish community the way you want to see it.

Care.

Community is based on relationships, one conversation at a time. We invite you to meet us for coffee and a conversation about what Jewish life means to you – and to us – in this generation.
