The objectives of the AZA were developed to give every young Jewish man a chance to grow and become a better person through participating in a program that youth share in planning. The Seven Cardinal Principles were laid out by our founding members in 1924 to define the ideals of the Aleph Zadik Aleph.
These are the Seven Cardinal Principles that were laid out by the founding members of AZA to define the ideals of the Aleph Zadik Aleph
Patriotism- Loyalty to my homeland, to its laws, to its principles, to its ethics. To die for it if need be, but primarily to live for it.
Judaism- Always to observe the tenets of my faith; ever to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with the Lord my God.
Filial love- Ever to honor and love my parents. To be considerate of my elders and to respect age.
Charity- To give of myself and my substance for all worthy causes; to be kind and generous to all in need, regardless of race or color.
Conduct- Never too bold, never too forward, ever humble, ever observing the principles of gentlemen.
Purity- To keep my soul pure, my mind active, and my body healthy.
Fraternity- A spirit of sociability, of cooperation, and of friendship toward all AZA's that shall make of us one fellowship; a love of and a loyalty to AZA and its ideals
