Our Board-approved congregational statement opposing NC House Bill 2:
Judea Reform Congregation, in keeping with the Jewish Tradition’s emphasis on the dignity of all human beings made in the divine image (b’tzelem elohim), and with our Reform Movement’s recent resolution on the rights of transgender and gender non-conforming people, regrets the passage of House Bill 2. We have been, and will remain, a congregation that welcomes transgender and gender non-conforming members and guests. Our prayers are with North Carolinians whose dignity and humanity is under attack. We stand with them, and against those who would strip them of their protections under the law.
On April 6, letters were sent by Rabbi Bach and Board President Ivy Hoffman to Governor Pat McCrory, North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore, and North Carolina Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger, expressing our congregation’s strong objection to HB2. Click HERE to read the letters.
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. 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.
