Our Mission and Vision

Create Collect Creator - Our Mission and Vision


At the Workmen’s Circle, Jewish identity is not defined by or confined to religious beliefs.  For us, identity and belonging are found in our heritage, values, ideals, language, cultural traditions and celebrations.  We have been cultivating a proudly progressive, diverse and inclusive community rooted in Jewish culture and social action for more than a century.

Since our founding, the needs and priorities of our community have evolved, and today’s Workmen’s Circle is responding in new and exciting ways.  We seed and support vibrant Jewish learning communities, create opportunities to connect to Jewish culture, celebrate our rich heritage, and take action for social and economic justice.  Together, as we always have, we are working to build a shenere un besere velt far ale – a better and more beautiful world for all.
