Mission + Vision

 

MISSION

Kol Shofar is a dynamic congregation rooted in the enduring values of Jewish traditions, while embracing innovations that enrich contemporary Jewish life. We cultivate personal spiritual growth and connection to a caring community. Together we create meaningful, accessible experiences of learning, prayer, service, and celebration to help people of all ages and diverse backgrounds live more purposeful lives and improve the world.

Vision

We are an intergenerational community that honors our elders, empowers our young, and enriches all through meaningful connections to our shared Jewish peoplehood and Jewish destiny.  We are an evolving and inclusive place with a reverence for tradition yet unafraid to embrace changes that inform the values of our time and place. 

A Note from Rabbi Paul Steinberg

Kol Shofar strives to be a vibrant hive of Jewish life.  While we cherish the sanctity of our Beit Knesset and Beit Midrash, we endeavor to be unbound by the walls of our building.  We are a community that lives our Judaism in our homes, in our streets, and in the hills, woods, and waters of our naturally blessed Marin County.  We feel bound in our hearts to our Jewish homeland in Israel and called to the responsibility of navigating its complexity with love and understanding.  We are committed to building bridges and mutually supportive relationships with other Jewish institutions, as well as other faith and spiritual communities throughout the Bay Area.  We are one human family, entrusted with a sacred responsibility “to work and protect the garden” (Gen. 2:15).

All are welcome here, join us as together we build a rich tapestry of religious, cultural, personal, and professional learning opportunities.
