Curious about what's going on at Reconstructing Judaism? Rabbi Deborah Waxman, president of Reconstructing Judaism, reports on her participation in the national leadership mission to the San Diego-Tijuana border organized by HIAS and the Anti-Defamation League.
Reconstructing Judaism is much more than the name of our organization. It’s an ongoing process lived out every day in communities around the world. We continue to spotlight ways that our affiliated communities and individuals are reconstructing elements of Judaism, infusing them with new relevancy, purpose and meaning. Do you have a spotlight? Let us know!
Evolve: Groundbreaking Jewish Conversations is a new initiative of Reconstructing Judaism which seeks to answer the Big Questions of our time. Explore the original essays, videos, and curriculum, and add your voice to the conversation.
