  1. Israel Lights in Darkness

    Since I’ve arrived in Israel, I’ve been hearing the phrase “during these dark days” as a preamble to any discussion of social and political issues. The atmosphere is tentative, and a bit heavy. Along with winter’s progression of light becoming dimmer and dimmer, the almost daily terrorist attacks emphasize a sense of helplessness and doom. Many Israelis feel paralyzed: not believing the situation can change, they also don’t think that there is anything they can personally do to change it.

  4. About Recon - Intellectual Origins

    The name Reconstructionist was coined in the first half of the 20th century to describe an approach to understanding and living a Jewish life that dates back to the sixth century B.C.E. Jeremiah illustrated this approach as he confronted the challenges of early Israel.. Correctly sensing that the community was facing great changes, Jeremiah understood that it was his role as a Jewish leader:

    To uproot and to pull down, To destroy and to overthrow, To build and to plant.” (Jer. 1:10)

    What is going on in a child’s mind when they ask a question? Rabbi Harold Kushner tells the amusing story of the parent who wanted to provide sophisticated theological answers to his five-year-old son who had asked about God. The father explained how God wasn’t really a person, but was instead a spirit, a miraculous presence. A few minutes later the five-year-old came back to his father and said, “I got it. God is like Casper the Friendly Ghost.”
