Visiting Communities

 

What is the Masorti Movement?

How does a masorti congregation look like?

What does it mean to be a Masorti/Conservative Jew in the State of Israel?

What are the challenges?

What is the vision for the future?

These questions and more are a sample of the questions which can be addressed in a mifgash/encounter with the Masorti movement in Israel. A visit to a Masorti congregation or a learning session with the leadership of the movement is an opportunity to engage questions about the movement to a depth that only a one on one encounter provides.

 

A meaningful encounter:

We believe that a mifgash, the people-to-people encounter between Jews from around the world with Israelis who are members of Masorti congregations will provided an opportunity to meet together to learn more about each other’s communities and lives.

A mifgsh can take place in a Masorti congregation; involve home hospitality or a joint activity.

If you are planning a congregational trip to Israel please let us know, we look forward to meeting you!

Each inclines its ear to its own sea.

Only the pearl diver or the antique dealer

Can say for certain: the same sea"

The Masorti Movement is committed to a pluralistic, egalitarian, and democratic vision of Zionism. Masorti represents a “third” way. Not secular Judaism. Not ultra-Orthodoxy. But a Jewish life that integrates secular beliefs. Halakhah with inclusion and egalitarianism. Tradition that recognizes the realities of today’s world. Masorti engages tens of thousands of Israelis each year, young and old, native born as well as olim from around the globe.
