Who We Are.
We are a progressive Jewish voice within the broader Nashville Jewish community committed to exploring and supporting solutions that will advance the principles of democratic pluralism, religious freedom, and social and economic justice. Our Jewish faith guides our commitment to maintain just, fair, and compassionate public policies on the national, state, and local levels. It is our intent to support an interfaith, inter-ethnic, and interracial community in which all can live with civility and dignity.

In addition, we are guided by age-old Jewish principles related to justice including, but not limited, to the following:
