What is MAsorti Judaism

Masorti comes from the Hebrew word for ‘tradition’. Our aim is a living and relevant Judaism. Masorti Judaism places great value on the wealth of Jewish history and tradition. We try to retain beliefs and practices while adapting them to the modern world. Masorti Judaism supports a flourishing network of communities where people can find meaning by connecting to Judaism and to each other.
