  1. A Reconstructionist Exploration of Dietary Law

    When I was growing up, Sunday morning breakfast at our home always included bacon. Seders routinely featured sliced bread alongside the matzah. As we lived just down the block from a Chinese restaurant, pork and shellfish (however diced and disguised) frequently found their way to our table. It is fair to say that my family of origin was lacking in kosher consciousness!

    This is Vicki from B'nai Havurah in Denver, Colorado. I am on the Children's High Holiday Programming committee. I have been involved with this committee on and off for about the last 8 years. I am currently asking for your input on what your synagogue does/offers for youth, grades kindergarten through 6th or 7th grade (B'nai Mitzvah) during the Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur Services.

    This Passover, we’ve developed resources around the theme of refugees.

    We created a nifty video (below) featuring Reconstructing Judaism’s President Rabbi Deborah Waxman walking viewers through the symbolism of a seder plate.

    We’ve also created a supplement to use with your haggadah:

  7. Seeing the Other

    Recently I was invited to teach a group of queer Jewish undergraduates who on their own initiative, organized themselves into a group that meets weekly over dinner at the campus Hillel Foundation (Jewish Center) to discuss topics and issues of common concern. They asked me to speak on “Queering Jewish Theology,” and I led them for an hour through a study of several traditional sacred texts that suggest ways that human beings might engage with God in a way that does not depend on the approval of communal human authorities.

  8. The Value of a DIfferent Path

    Mother’s Day and Father’s Day may have been invented by Hallmark as a brilliant strategy for selling greeting cards, but these days are becoming embedded in the warp and woof of our culture’s values and ritual practice. I am in favor of encouraging children and partners to appreciate celebrate the love of parents. I do think, however, that we are taking it a bit too far.
