  2. Holding Ourselves Accountable

    Can virtuous behavior be taught?

    I have had my doubts. Of course, parents do their best to instill their values in their children. In retrospect, however, it seems to me as if I learned from the way my parents lived their lives rather than from any values that they tried to teach me. I would say the same thing about how my own children have turned out. If they are honest or kind, it is not because their parents or religious school teachers told them that honesty or kindness are good, but rather because there were people in their lives who have modeled honesty or kindness.

  4. Does The Torah Require Us To Publicize Names Of Sexual Abusers?

    What does Judaism teach us about how to respond to accusations of harassment or assault? Are we to regard the reputation of the accused as the highest priority even if that means silencing those speaking up against abuse? If so, how can the Jewish community address the problem?

  5. February 2019 RT Article - Evolving

    There is a vast amount of diversity across the Reconstructionist movement. This is a good thing: the embrace of diversity, the recognition that it could be vitalizing for the Jewish people and the Jewish civilization, is at the heart of a Reconstructionist approach to being Jewish. Yet there is one thing on which every Reconstructionist I encounter agrees: we all want the Reconstructionist movement to have greater visibility. We all want recognition for all our past innovations and for all the ways we continue to reconstruct Jewish life now.

  6. Need to Take a Breath at Work? Edgeblog

    More and faster describes my usual work habit. I’ve operated this way for decades. Now, as the Vice President for Innovation and Impact at Reconstructing Judaism, I apply this ingrained approach to ensure focus on the hour-by-hour demands of my calendar. Meetings, grant applications, reports, time to design new and better engagement all rightfully demand my attention. I’m working for the Jewish future. “Keep working,” I tell myself. Yet, finally I’m realizing that by continuing to bow to my task list as master, I am making mistakes.

  8. Ritualwell’s ADVOT Creates Poetic Community

    This article was originally published in the Jewish Exponent by Sasha Rogelberg.

     

    Before Ritualwell was a website containing more than 2,200 liturgy and rituals crowdsourced by Jews, it was an idea of where to put dozens of scraps of paper in the drawers of offices in the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College and Kolot: Center for Jewish Women’s and Gender Studies in Wyncote.
