Our mission:

Westchester Reform Temple is a vibrant, caring, and welcoming community – a Kehillah Kedoshah – that connects through Judaism to cultivate joy and meaning at every stage of life.  We join together to support and lift each other spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually; carry Jewish tradition forward proudly; and impact the world positively.

We accomplish this through:

  • Prayer and Celebration: providing musical and other inspiring spiritual expression, including for Shabbat, holidays, lifecycle events, and other times of happiness and sorrow;
  • Learning and Exploration: offering engaging, lifelong Jewish study and experiences; and
  • Community and Global Action: promoting justice, repairing the world, and supporting the Jewish people and the State of Israel.

Enduring values guide all that we do: 

  • Community and connection
  • Caring, respect, and inclusion
  • Judaism in our daily lives
  • Pursuit of excellence and innovation

WRT’s mission and values build upon five long-standing pillars inscribed on our temple’s walls: Avodah (Worship and Spirituality), Chavurah (Community), Talmud Torah (Learning), Tikkun Olam (Social Action and Repairing the World), and Clal Yisrael (Responsibility For All Jews).
