Impact statement

We envision a future in which Judaism is experienced as accessible, inspiring and vital to the vast majority of Jews.  The contribution of Jewish Milestones to the realization of this vision is harnessing the transformative power of lifecycle rituals, forging a new professional path for facilitators of ritual and encouraging candid discussion of the de facto reality of contemporary North American Jewish life that is lived primarily outside a synagogue framework.
