  9. JRF Israel Task Force Report

    This 2004 report from the Jewish Reconstructionist Federationemerged from a movement-wide process that solicited thoughtful input from Reconstructionists across the country. A dedicated committee of rabbis and lay people developed the positions and proposals laid out in the report. While the Task Force’s proposals were never implemented, our revived Israel Task Force will be using the 2004 report as our foundation for moving forward. While much has changed since it was written., most of the earlier report’s framework and recommendations are still compelling and sound.
