  1. Israel sermon - sid - limiting debate

    (This article appeared in the New York Jewish Week on February 2, 2014.)

    The current controversy brewing in the Hillel universe is only the latest example of a Jewish community polarized over how we can or can’t talk about Israel. The guidelines, developed by national Hillel in 2010, were designed to provide a basis upon which a local Hillel could prevent overtly anti-Israel groups from speaking under the Hillel banner.

  3. What's God Have to Do With It?

    A High Holiday Sermon delivered by by Rabbi Sid Schwarz at Adat Shalom Reconstructionist Congregation, Bethesda, MD
    Yom Kippur 2007

I thought of this when I recently picked up a book entitled, Children’s Letters to God. Here are a few excerpts:

    “Dear God:

  4. Being Part of the Universe

    Let us begin by remembering that the spiritual always points toward the unity of things, not their division. Judaism tries to help us to work from a higher perspective. To celebrate the creation of the world, as we do on Rosh Hashanah, is to see ourselves as an integral part of all that is and not to see ourselves as the measure of all things. The egotistical, self-centered part of our mind, “the evil urge” if you will, always leads us to experience our separateness from the natural world.

    For Reconstructionists, Judaism is not just a philosophy. Lived Jewish experience is at the core of Jewish peoplehood. Reconstructionists learn from traditional practice, adapting it to our era, so that we can:

    • Mark important moments in our lives

    • Create and share creative works of beauty and insight

    • Mark important moments in our lives

    • Imbue each week, and the seasons of each year, with meaning and consciousness

In our congregations, havurot and camp, we take bold risks and firm stands in order to help Torah, Jewish practice, culture and community evolve to meet the needs of today’s diverse progressive Jews and fellow travellers.

  10. Reconstructionism Landing

    Reconstructionists approach Judaism — and life — with deep reverence for the past and a passion to relate it to the present. In a rapidly changing world, Reconstructionist communities share and create new ways of being Jewish to connect us to the divine and ensure our lives are filled with purpose.

    • We view Judaism as the evolving civilization of the Jewish people in an ongoing relationship with God. Our shared culture — rituals, traditions and practices — reflect over 3,000 years of that evolution, and we continue to share and shape it today.
