The Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island (the Alliance) serves to enrich the quality of life for Jews in Rhode Island, in Israel, and around the world. Today's Alliance is where the community comes together as one to develop responses to critical issues facing Rhode Island. We do this through philanthropy, education and wellness opportunities, community relations, and by convening agencies, synagogues, and organizations to address issues of common concern. Together, we translate Jewish tradition and values into action. All of our work is guided by our core values:
*Tzedakah: upholding the Jewish traditions of righteous giving and justice.
*L'dor v'dor: securing a future filled with Jewish tradition and heritage.
*Tikkun Olam: repairing the world.
*Hineni: standing with others so no one stands alone.
*Klal Yisrael: supporting worldwide Judaism and the State of Israel.
*Torah: pursuing knowledge and lifelong learning.
