Jewish Progressive Community of Rome- Beth Hillel Roma

As a Progressive Jewish congregation, Beth Hillel promotes equal participation in religious life for all our members, without discrimination regarding gender or sexual orientation.

the community welcomes mixed-married couples and their children into the community, while encouraging the non-Jewish partner to be supportive of the family’s Jewish identity.  We also offer a course for those interested in converting to Judaism.

Beth Hillel believes in the importance of inter-religious dialogue and supports the project entitled “Scriptural Reasoning,” which brings together people of different faith communities to discuss their sacred texts.

The community actively cooperates with other Progressive Jewish congregations in Italy, in Europe and throughout the world to strengthen the principles of religious pluralism. Together with the other Progressive Italian communities we advocate recognition by the Union of Italian Jewish Communities (UCEI) with the hope that all Jewish communities in Italy will constitute one united Jewish family.
