Welcome to Our Congregation
Congregation M’kor Hayim (“Source of Life“) is a Reform Jewish congregation in Tucson, Arizona, established in the fall of 2008. As our mission statement declares, we are dedicated to building and sustaining a spiritual, religious, intellectual and social home based on Jewish values and practices.
We support the Union for Reform Judaism’s Audacious Hospitality initiative which advocates a Judaism that is inclusive and reflective of a wide range of identities through a focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Here is our Statement of Commitment to this URJ Initiative.
Our congregation welcomes interfaith families, people exploring Judaism, Jews of Color, and people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
The following blessing expresses our hopes for the congregation and all the people it serves. The blessing was written by founding member Margo Levine:
May this congregation welcome all who share our purpose, have ideas to express, and hopes to nurture.
May we gather in an atmosphere of support, respect, and friendship.
May we be mindful of our goals and avoid the distractions of self.
May we be kind in our differences and humble in our agreements.
May we be good and wise companions.
May this congregation foster an endeavor that leads to a richer and more meaningful Jewish life.
