United Orthodox Synagogues believes in the philosophy of Torah
to Torah, halakhah, and the quest for kedushah, holiness
and spiritual growth. Like other Modern Orthodox institutions, UOS
values open intellectual inquiry and expression in both the secular
and religious arenas; engagement with the social, political and technological
realities of the modern world; recognition and deep appreciation
of the religious significance of the State of Israel; and the unity
of the Jewish community at large. UOS is affiliated with the Orthodox
Union and Yeshiva University and other major Orthodox institutions
in the United States.
At UOS, one can recognize that becoming religiously observant is
a path where no one should be made to feel uncomfortable, regardless
of their level of observance and Jewish knowledge. As UOS continues
to grow, it remains committed to creating a warm and welcoming environment
to all Jews who share a desire to develop their knowledge of Judaism
and commitment to their faith.
