Our Values

As a Progressive Jewish community, the IJC embraces an inclusive expression of Judaism and Jewish identity.

We respect both traditional and modern values. We acknowledge the diversity of Jewish beliefs and practices.

All our activities are conducted in a climate of respect for sacred texts while being open to critical scholarship.

The IJC is international, offering a 'home away from home' where you can feel comfortable about being Jewish and learn and enjoy all the wonderful aspects of Jewish religion and culture.

We are informal. You can have a conversation about your Jewish life in Belgium in a relaxed and trusting atmosphere. The IJC is open and supports mixed-faith marriage, gay/lesbian members and gender equality. New members are warmly welcomed. We are vibrant and growing.

The IJC offers an opportunity to participate in real-time Jewish community building in Belgium.
