The Falmouth Jewish Congregation on Cape Cod is a vibrant, Reform congregation affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ). Our community represents a diverse, inclusive, participatory family where congregants from all backgrounds are welcomed with warmth and respect. Our historic East End Meeting House (1797), given to the congregation by a local church, is an important symbol of the positive interfaith relations we enjoy in a predominantly non-Jewish community. Our members represent varied traditions, practices, and beliefs. However, we are united in our dedication to providing a place that meets the needs of the Jewish community for worship, lifelong learning and charitable acts.
Our experience is enriched by rabbinic and lay leadership as we pursue educational, social, spiritual, and religious programming to achieve a sense of kedusha (holiness) within our lives. We fashion innovative interpretations of time-honored rituals to carry us into the future, looking to the riches of our tradition for inspiration. We affirm these values:
TORAH: A commitment to Jewish learning in order to deepen our knowledge and observance of Judaism.
AVODAH: A devotion to Jewish worship by creating varied opportunities for spiritual fulfillment.
GEMILUT CHASADIM: An active engagement in tikkun olam, the quest for greater justice, peace, acts of loving kindness, and social responsibility.
