2017-18 Learning Networks logo



Let’s journey together to build a more just and joyous world.

Reconstructionist Learning Networks connect you with people across geography and perspectives. Explore the crucial questions of Jewish life that just can’t be Googled, and that matter most to you and your community. Join a network to journey, imagine and create.

Collaborate with experts, including Reconstructing Judaism staff, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College faculty, authors and leaders. Facilitators work with you to set agendas, bring expertise and foster learning among colleagues. Explore case studies, text studies, resource materials, and real-life challenges and solutions. Experiment and troubleshoot together.

Networks meet three to six times a year online for about an hour each session. At least six people are required for each network.


How To

We meet online by video for hour-long sessions. To connect to our video-conferencing platform, Zoom, you need a computer, iPad or phone with a working camera, speaker and microphone. Technical support is available by emailing learningnetworks@reconstructingjudaism.org in advance of the call.

If you’re unable to make the session live, all sessions will be recorded and made available to registrants afterward.


Reconstructionist Learning Networks are free to members and staff of the affiliates of Reconstructing Judaism and members of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA). For non-members, the suggested donation is $54 per network. To see if your synagogue or havurah is affiliated, please visit http://www.ReconstructingJudaism.org/directory.

Ritualwell Immersions are initiatives from Ritualwell, an online home for innovative Jewish rituals. Immersions go in-depth with expert rabbis and teachers to develop personalized rituals and engage in meaningful Jewish learning.
