Welcome! At Judea Reform, you will find the values, traditions, practices, hopes, and inspiration that Reform Jews cherish: lifelong learning, tikkun olam, worship, celebration, community, connection to Israel, and meaningful lives.
Our members are families with young children, singles of all ages, founders of our congregation, new arrivals to the area, people who have converted, interfaith families, people from all over the world, and even people who were born and raised right here in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina. Our members live in Durham, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and surrounding counties, including Chatham, Alamance, Wake, and Vance counties. We welcome people from all backgrounds, recognizing the gift of diversity and inclusion in our community.
What we all have in common is a love of Judaism and a mission to cultivate Jewish life for everyone who walks through our doors.
You can learn a lot about us from our various publications:
- Stay up to date with our Calendar.
- Read more about our members, our leadership, and our projects in our newsletter, Connections.
Come pray with us, have a nosh at the oneg, and introduce yourself—we look forward to meeting you!
Torah teaches us that we must remember, love, and protect the stranger among us because we have been strangers, ourselves. Further, Torah teaches us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Therefore, we stand with all those, strangers and neighbors, who are victimized based on their identities, including members of the LGBTQ community, members of the Muslim community, disabled people, refugees, people of color, women, and, of course, ourselves, as Jews.
Who we are is who God is, we will treat each other with that in mind.
