SCA & American Values

The SCA believes that the United States is by and large a force for good in the world, and that despite its imperfections, has created a system that allows for ongoing improvement which can  move it closer to its ideals; many of which are based on the values in our Torah. 

The United States has given our Community and our people unimaginable freedom, security, safety and opportunity for which we are grateful. Freedom of Speech, Religion and Press are among many important principles enjoyed by all citizens, and ones which the SCA and all Community institutions and leaders use, to advance the wellbeing of our Community. The SCA is committed to highlighting the ways in which our community, all Americans, and people around the world have benefited from these basic American values, so that our youth may appreciate, and never take for granted, the gift that is America.
