מסורת של התחדשות יהודית

The Israel Movement for Reform & Progressive Judaism (IMPJ) is the umbrella organization of all the Reform communities and institutions in Israel.
We seek to integrate Jewish tradition with the realities of modern life, and believe in the right of each individual to shape their own Jewish way of life through a process of study and reflection. The Reform movement emphasizes the commandments concerning relations between humans, religious tolerance, and full equality between women and men in the synagogue and in all walks of life.

Social Justice

Social Justice Jewish tradition mandates concern for others, and the IMPJ takes this value seriously.

The IMPJ cooperates with local congregations, the Israel Religious Action Center, the Young Adult Leadership Forum and other bodies in order to plan and implement social justice programs.
