Har El, The North Shore Centre for Jewish Life will be a place:
- With many doors leading in
- Free of judgement, where every person with a Jewish spirit is welcome and valued
- Where people can celebrate Jewish worship and lifecycle events
- Where people can congregate in ways that are important to them, be it based on ritual, social, cultural or otherwise
- That will help ensure the perpetual presence of our community and pass on our values from generation to generation
- That proudly demonstrates solidarity with the State of Israel
- That recognizes its role within the larger local community
