  2. Yigdal Reconstructionist Text Study

    Yigdal, one of the most beloved of the medieval piyyutim (liturgical poems), appears as an opening hymn in the daily morning service. Yigdal summarizes the thirteen principles of the Jewish faith as formulated by Moses Maimonides (RaMBaM; late 12th century C.E.) in his Mishnah commentary on Sanhedrin 10:1.
     
    Reconstructionists often proudly assert that when we pray with a Reconstructionist siddur, we feel that we can 'say what we mean and mean what we say,' because our liturgical language reflects Reconstructionist theology.

  3. Bronstein teaching call - Hasidic lens on Parashat Bo

    Today I want to share with you some of what I think are the most astounding, and provocative, and informative Jewish messages that we have available to us as Reconstructionists, as Jews in general today. But they come from a place that you might never think to look: the 18th-century and 19th-century Hasidic commentaries on the Torah.

  4. Reconstructing for Tomorrow 11/7/17 First Session

    There’s been a tension throughout our history between understanding Reconstructionism as an approach to being Jewish, a set of questions, a set of processes, a set of conversations. Reconstructionism as an organizational structure embodies those questions, those processes, those conversations.

  7. Reconstructing for Tomorrow 12/5/2017 Third Session

    The Reconstructionist movement investigates a natural or transnatural understanding of God…that is, setting aside the personal idea of God…and embraces the laws of natural science and accept that they are contained within a divinity.

  8. Reconstructing for Tomorrow 12/19/2018

    We are not solely rational creatures, but also at the same time spiritual. One can be spiritual and at the same time not forego the rational…we can do a dance between them.

  9. Seth Rosen Aug 6

    In the last several weeks, two experiences, both of them ongoing, have made clear to me the power and persistency of “gathering” as a lynchpin of building and sustaining a spiritual community within the Reconstructionist movement. By “gathering,” I mean physically gathering—being together at the same time, in the same place, for one another and with one another.
