The United Synagogue strives to be a modern and united family of communities with members connected to vibrant Jewish life and Torah values.
- Inspire US members, with enriched lives, passing our heritage on to future generations
- To engage our members with mainstream, orthodox Jewish living, learning and caring

We wish to welcome every Jew, create a sense of belonging and allow for life-long Jewish learning, spiritual growth and religious practice. We strongly believe in the centrality of Israel in Jewish life, and in the importance of mutual responsibility.
