Emet

אמת

TRUTH

We believe in truth, and humanity’s ability to discover it.

Return

对真理的追求,一直是人类认识进步的推动力, 从苏格拉底在雅典街头的漫步到工业革命的创新. People of faith, who believe in a divine author of Creation, believe that the act of discovery is sacred, whether in the realm of philosophy, physics, economics or the study of the human mind.


犹太人尤其肯定,从摩西五经在西奈山的启示开始, 神把永恒的教导和价值托付给沙巴体育app,沙巴体育app必须珍惜和勤奋学习高于一切, for they represent the terms of the special covenant that God made with us. All people, regardless of their faith background, 应该重视知识的积累,因为它是通向真理的道路,是人类成长的先决条件吗.

Chaim

חיים

Life

We believe in bringing values to life.

Return

犹太思想认为,真理被提供给人类,不仅是为了让他们对它感到惊奇,也是为了让他们能够使用它. Students studying literature, computer science, law, 心理学或其他任何学科都需要把他们学到的东西运用到自己的生活中,并应用到他们周围的现实世界中.


When people see a problem that needs addressing, 他们的责任是利用他们在学习中发现的事实来寻找解决方案. They must live truth in the real world, not simply study it in the classroom.

Adam

אדם

Infinite Human Worth

We believe in the infinite worth of each and every human being.

Return

犹太传统首先向世界介绍了一个激进的命题,即每个人都是按照神的形象创造的,因此拥有不可估量的价值和价值.

 

每个人拥有的独特的天赋和技能是这个神圣形象的反映, and it is therefore a sacred task to hone and develop them. 这一过程所带来的巨大的人类多样性不是一种挑战,而是一种祝福. Each of us has our own path to greatness.

Chesed

חסד

Compassion

We believe in the responsibility to reach out to others in compassion.

Return

Even as we recognize the opportunities of human diversity, Jewish tradition emphasizes the importance of common obligations. In particular, every human being is given the same responsibility to use his or her unique gifts in the service of others; to care for their fellow human beings; to reach out to them in thoughtfulness, kindness and sensitivity; and to form a connected community.

Zion

ציון

Redemption

We believe that humanity's purpose is to transform our world for the better and move history forward.

Return

In Jewish thought, 救赎的概念代表了一种信念,即当沙巴体育app生活在一个不完美的世界, we have a responsibility to strive toward its perfection. 不管一个人对社会完美是否可以实现或是否可以定义的个人信念, it is the act of working toward it that gives our lives meaning and purpose. This common striving is an endeavor that brings all of humanity together.

 

犹太人的任务是把以色列这块土地建设成一个鼓舞人心的模范社会,这是这种努力的缩影. But it is part of a larger project that includes all of humankind. If the arc of the moral universe bends toward justice, 那么救赎代表着沙巴体育app的责任,一起为上帝服务,推动历史前进.
