Anti-Harassment and Culture of Respect Policy

Anti-Harassment and Culture of Respect Policy

Central Synagogue is committed to a workplace in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity. In addition to prohibiting harassment that would be illegal under federal, state, or local law, we are also committed to not tolerating behavior that is inconsistent with the values of Central Synagogue, even if such behavior would not violate the law.

A Respectful Community

Every individual associated with, or who comes into contact with Central Synagogue, must be treated with respect. Central Synagogue prohibits any form of unwelcome behavior, even if such behavior may not violate the law, or is not yet sufficiently severe or persistent to rise to the level of creating a hostile work environment. Additionally, Central Synagogue specifically prohibits harassment directed towards any protected category as defined below. Harassment on these bases is illegal under federal law and/or New York State and New York City law. The policy covers in-person interactions and communications via calls, texts, emails, blog posts, or other social media.

Individuals in the Central community who believe they have experienced or witnessed inappropriate behavior that does not support Central’s commitment to a community in which all individuals are treated with dignity and respect as defined in our Culture of Respect and Anti-Harassment Policy may submit a report to the President of the Board of Trustees, at [email protected], or the Executive Director via email to [email protected] or through the anonymous reporting portal below. 

We all must work together to create the safe, respectful, diverse, and inclusive environment that reflects the core values of Central Synagogue.
