ABOUT CONGREGATION ASAS EMUNO OF LEONIA, NJ
To our ancestors in the old country, the synagogue was the center of the community. A community, joined together, not just through mutual faith, but through common respect and concern for one another. At Adas Emuno, we believe that the synagogue is much more than a place to pray; it is the center of our community. Our synagogue is a place to gather and learn, to share life’s joys and sorrows, to grow both together and as individuals.
As a group we endeavor to welcome and include. We believe that faith and Jewish identity come from the heart, and that a healthy community needs to incorporate a diverse spectrum of philosophies and ideals. As a Reform congregation, our goal is to strengthen within our membership the bonds of faith and community and instill within our children the sense, history and responsibility of growing up in a Jewish community.

The positions of the Reform Movement are based primarily in two sources: Resolutions adopted by the Union for Reform Judaism, and resolutions adopted by the Central Conference of American Rabbis
