• Respect – A diverse Jewish community that is respectful, accessible and welcoming

• Education – Life-long Jewish learning and experiences.

• Engagement – Active participation of people in the many facets of Jewish life. 

• Innovation – Creative approaches to solving community issues.

We believe that this vision for our community is absolutely achievable through careful planning by The Associated in partnership with the agencies we fund and the many other institutions that devote themselves to the enrichment of Jewish life in Baltimore—our community’s synagogues, schools, community centers, government, and so forth.
