In our view, Zionism is the appropriate response to the tangible needs of the Jewish people. As Jews, we are committed to the fulfillment of our right to our own sovereignty. We see Israel as center, both spiritual and tangible, of the modern Jewish experience. As the State of the Jewish People, Israel has become in a short time the focus of spiritual creation, language renewal, intellectual incentive, cultural development, and folkloric innovation.
We declare ourselves Humanists because we place the Human Being, in its tangible form, at the center of our world view, in contrast to ideologies and world conceptions that saw (and still see) the human being as a means.
Our organic outlook on society tends to see the human being as the main component of the whole political and social deed.
We see the modern State as being responsible for the creation of basic conditions for all its citizens in order to allow for a healthy competition among the different forces of the market, which will in turn fight against monopolization of the means of production, transportation, commerce, or information, ensuring free access to education and information, and preventing a concentration of power in the hands of a few.
Our pluralistic outlook is not limited to the Jewish dimension; rather, it extends into universality. We believe in culture of dialogue, the legitimacy of debate, and the open discussion.
This is the culture to which we aspire, on the basis of the belief that a mature and developed human being is equipped with the capabilities to define his/her position towards his/her Jewish identity. Therefore, we consider the existence, within the wide framework of the Jewish mosaic, of different schools of thought, philosophical approaches, and forms of cult to be legitimate and even necessary.
