Our rich event offerings continue online! Click here to see what’s coming up.

Reconstructing Judaism staff is working remotely to help curtail the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community members and their loved ones safe. We look forward to continuing to connect with you as always. Our physical offices will be closed until further notice.

May those  directly affected experience  refuah shleimah:  a healing of body, mind and spirit.  And may we all do our part to save lives. In Judaism, the obligation of  pikuach  nefesh  (saving a life)  supersedes  all.

 


 

Reconstructing Judaism is the central organization of the Reconstructionist movement. We train the next generation of rabbis, support and uplift congregations and  havurot, foster emerging expressions of Jewish life, and encourage people to be their best selves — always helping to shape what it means to be Jewish today and to imagine the Jewish future.

Reconstructionists approach Judaism — and life — with deep consideration of the past and a passion to relate it to the present. We have originated many of the core innovations of today’s Judaism and lead efforts to make our congregations and havurot even more groundbreaking, inclusive and relevant.

We welcome your voice, questions and participation in something larger: email us here.
