  1. Embracing the Stranger - Justice and Wider World

    Embracing the stranger is not just an individual journey—it’s a communal calling. We are commanded as Jews to “Love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.” (Deuteronomy 10:19) In the face of fear, hostility, or simple disregard toward those who are different, our challenge is to lift up our common humanity, and our inherent dignity and worth as beings b’tzelem Elohim, reflecting the divine image.

  10. Reclaiming Judaism After Centuries Underground

    The mountain town of Serrastretta in the Calabria region of southern Italy is not an obvious place to find a synagogue, let alone a Reconstructionist one. But beneath the Catholic surface of this remote community lies a surprising Jewish legacy: Many families are descended from b’nei anusim, Jews who underwent forced conversion to Catholicism during the Inquisition.
