What We Do
Committed. Sacred. Strong. Beautiful. Forward-Facing.
Committed. The ACC as a professional benefits organization is strongly committed to its members, the Reform movement and the movement’s affiliated organizations. To its members it pledges advocacy, professional support, camaraderie and training. To the movement it pledges support and participation in the movement’s efforts to repair the world and to the movement’s affiliated organizations, it pledges cooperation and partnership.
Sacred. The cantorial vocation is fundamentally a sacred calling, and the ACC’s work has a sacred quality to it. The ACC is more than a professional benefits organization or a labor union. It is an organization that, through its members, advocates, designs, facilitates and hosts sacred time and space within Jewish life.
Strong. The ACC is equipped to lead in uncertain times, both the movement and the congregations it serves.
Beautiful. The ACC and its members help bring beauty into the world, through music, prayer, and the pastoral gift of being present to members in life’s joyful and sad moments.
Forward-Facing. The ACC takes bold steps to meet today’s challenges and ensure a bright future for cantors, congregations, and the Reform movement in North America.
