Brit Olam

In the beginning of November 2017, the Lakeside Board of Directors unanimously agreed to sign a Brit Olam (Covenant with the World) in unity with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism. On November 21st, 2017, we joined with synagogues across the nation in "committing to fostering a culture of sacred and civil dialogue in our congregation where all opinions are heard, grounding any action in our texts and values, acting in solidarity with vulnerable communities, and building relationships across lines of difference in our local community."

By signing onto the Brit Olam, we can once again reitereate and reaffirm our longtime commitment to meaningful and impactful social justice work. Our identity as a synagogue has always been closely tied to social justice, and we look forward to coming together with other congregations across the country in doing our part to repair the world.
