In the spirit of Jewish traditions, it provides for the religious, cultural and social life of its members and their social needs. It supports the education of its members in Jewish traditions and takes care of cultural and religious monuments (synagogues, cemeteries, museums, memorials, etc.).

It actively defends the Jewish community as a whole, as well as its individual members, against all manifestations of Antisemitism, racism, xenophobia, fascism, Nazism, against any discrimination and protects the memory of their victims.

Since 2002 it has been a member of the World Union for Progressive Judaism (WUPJ) and an associate member of the Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic.
