Ann Arbor's Post-denominational, Interfaith Synagogue

Locally grown in Ann Arbor, the IT MATTERS TO ME PROJECT™ is a nationally focused initiative that seeks to provide a unifying platform for sharing concerns on matters of human rights and civil rights.

Standing in solidarity with organizations and movements that seek to name, define, and speak out against societal problems, we've partnered with the Project to help give voice to the personal and collective stories that compel us to say: it matters to me.

As an expression of our commitment to tikkun olam (healing and repairing the world), we seek to be active participants in advancing a social justice agenda that speaks to the needs of our time. To this end, we believe spiritual communities have a unique opportunity, role, and responsibility to lead in taking positive steps toward a brighter future, remembering what Martin Luther King Jr. wrote to his fellow clergymen from the Birmingham city jail:

 "Justice too long delayed is justice denied."
