Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple is committed to:
- Kindness. From our founding in 1842, our commitment has been to be an Anshe Chesed (“people of kindness.”) We see this commitment as guiding our work in building a caring community, a leading institution in interfaith dialogue and advocacy, and in encouraging individual members and families to pursue acts of social justice.
- Learning. All who encounter Anshe Chesed will be touched by our love of learning. We commit to a range of lifelong learning opportunities, including classical study of Jewish sources, to education in retreat settings, to worship that encourages members to learn and to programs that encourage the learning of diverse points of view held in our community.
- Inclusion. We embrace all persons at Anshe Chesed, seeing each individual as having equal value. Among our membership, we commit to the inclusion of families representing all ages and financial means. We additionally commit to equality between men and women, and to warmly include in our community both interfaith families and all who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender.
- Relationships. The building of relationships is deeply woven into the work of Anshe Chesed. We seek to meaningfully relate with God, with Torah, with one another and with the people and land of Israel. Whether our community meets within the walls of our synagogue, at a partnering church, mosque or synagogue, in one of our homes, or traveling to a retreat or to the State of Israel, relating to one another and establishing enduring ties to the community are paramount. We also offer a business directory of our members, to help members support members and their businesses. Click here to download the Business Directory.
