  1. Marriage Equality and Religious Freedom

    On a recent evening in Scarsdale, N.Y., I was at the Mid-Westchester JCC, speaking on a panel to a packed and spirited room. We’d been invited to discuss marriage equality and Jewish values, and the tone was certainly celebratory. We acknowledged we have farther to go, but in light of the Supreme Court’s decision last year on gay marriage, we’ve certainly come a long way.

  2. Peres Mourning

  3. Kotel release Feb 2016

    The Reconstructionist movement is overjoyed that on Jan 31, 2016, the Israeli cabinet voted to dramatically expand the space for egalitarian prayer at the Kotel. This is a blessed and welcome decision. The Western Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City is a central and highly symbolic Jewish space. For many Jews, this is an historic moment, because an egalitarian community of men and women is essential to their religious obligations, needs and desires.

  4. PJI: Hope and the New Zionism

    Israel’s Declaration of Independence, read and signed on the evening of May 14, 1948, begins with the story of Jewish persecution and homelessness. Then it proclaims the principles on which the country will be established.

  5. PJI: Flight to Tel Aviv

    Each time I get ready to travel to Israel, I make sure that my hair dryer will be able to function using Israeli electricity. I need to turn a small switch so that it can be usable in Israel. The computer and other such smart appliances do not need to switch. They only need an adapter to change the shape of the plug. They know what to do.When I travel to Israel, I also switch my life to a different mode. The long flight and the immigration laws of both countries are the “adapter” I use. When I leave the USA I am an American and I use my American passport.

  9. Condemning UNESCO's Temple Mount Resolution

    RRC/Jewish Reconstructionist Communities condemns today’s United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Jerusalem resolution that functionally erases the historical presence of Judaism on the Temple Mount. The resolution ignores the existence of ancient Israel’s connection to the Temple Mount, and Israeli leaders on the left and right have objected to it strongly. We appreciate the U.S.’s vote against the resolution, which a White House spokesperson called “one-sided,” “unhelpful,” and “highly politicized.”
