From March 24-27, 2022, reconstructionists gathered both in-person and online from all over North America and beyond to learn, sing, pray and connect at B’Yachad: Reconstructing Judaism Together. This hybrid convention drew upon our work over the past 2+ years in creating new modes of multi-access gathering.
Over four days, more than 460 people in-person and 250 people online attended 146 workshops, plenaries and events, 89 of which were conducted as hybrid or online. Video from the major plenaries can be accessed on YouTube.

As part of our recent convention, we shared this video of a new setting for Hinei Mah Tov by RRC student Solomon Hoffman. It features more than 150 Reconstructionists representing 40 of our communities from across North America and beyond. The participants reflect the spectrum of our movement — lay leaders, rabbis, cantors, students, teachers, children, elders, musicians, singers, dancers, artists — all sharing in this collective project.
