  1. She Said No!

    Based on Chapter 1 of the Book of Esther

    Without her gown, He summoned her down
    Said it was his right, As a man with a crown
    He was obsessed; She should be undressed
    Vashti refused to be, a woman oppressed.

    CHORUS:
    She said “no” to the king,
    She said “no” to the king,
    She said “no-no-no-no-no-no-no”
    She said “no” to the king!

  3. Nancy F-K Tazria Metzora Dvar Torah

    Last week there appeared in my mailbox at RRC, a book that I had never heard of by someone who was also unknown to me. The book is called The Plausible God: Secular Reflections on Liberal Jewish Theology. The author, Mitchell Silver, is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Massachusetts, and a devout secular Jew. His book was occasioned by a growing realization that all of his good philosophical arguments against religion were really arguments against traditional theism, the “old God” as he calls Him. And I use the word “Him” advisedly here.

  7. 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.

  10. Omer Song

    Words and music by Juliet I. Spitzer, performed by MIRAJ (Juliet Spitzer, Rabbi Margot Stein, Rabbi Rayzel Raphael)

    Come on now, count the Omer
    You can count the Omer
    Come on now, count the Omer
    1, 2, 3, 4 Count with me!

    During the time the Temple stood
    Folks would come on by
    Offering a barley sheaf as a way to sanctify
    Life which should be rich and full
    And never, never rote…
    Come on, let’s count the days between
    Passover and Shavuot.

    Now, now, now (Chorus)
