About Us

Our Vision:

Masorti on Campus is committed to promoting the growth of educated and thoughtful Jewish adults, and building a network for Traditional-Egalitarian & Masorti/Conservative Jewish communities on North American college campuses. Our communities are built on shared values of the love of Torah, devotion to social justice, and dedication to community and Israel; we hold these principles to be the pillars of modern Judaism.

We strongly encourage campuses to foster pluralistic communities, with the goal of filling the academic year with powerful Torah learning in traditional yet completely egalitarian environments. The commitment to promote the growth of thoughtful Jewish adults, who value both tradition and egalitarianism, is paramount.

Our Mission:

The mission of Masorti on Campus is to provide for the needs of traditional-egalitarian Jewish campus communities. The goal of our projects and programs are to help sustain and grow a vision of Judaism that is intellectually rooted, spiritually compelling, and emotionally satisfying; following the philosophy and precepts of Masorti/Conservative Judaism. By forging campus partnerships Masorti on Campus aims to provide college students with opportunities to engage with each other, debate, question, and find a balance between Jewish tradition and modern life.
