About FJC

Mission

At Flatbush and Shaare Torah Jewish Center, we actively work towards building and sustaining a Jewish community that is safe for all of the intersected identities, ages and abilities who wish to pray under our tent.  Our aim is for our community to provide collective respite during Shabbat and festival celebrations that will give us the strength needed to be the change and affect the change that we want to see in the world.

Tent Poles

Prayer

We are committed to maintaining a Traditional Conservative, fully egalitarian, service where Jews of all genders have equal access to fully participate

Community

We are committed to providing both ritual and cultural Jewish life that is responsive to the evolving needs of our membership.  We are also committed to being active in the greater community in which we are located.

Equity

We are a lay led community committed to ongoing introspection in order to ensure that we produce the ‘receipts’ of our mission and vision.  We are committed to maintaining a community where all who enter the FJC community feel safe to, and are fully able to, participate in all of our life cycle events and programming.

Learning

We believe that multi-level text based learning is an important part of our spiritual and intellectual growth.  We provide learning opportunities in various modalities for our tots, children, teens and adults.
