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:
Enduring values guide all that we do:
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).
