  1. Jewish Support for Dreamers: A Self-Evident Truth

    Why did more than 100 Jewish leaders from around the country participate last month in act of civil disobedience in the rotunda of the Russell Senate Office Building?

    Why were 86 rabbis arrested, some handcuffed and carried off while still wearing their prayer shawls? And why do we, leaders of the Reconstructionist denomination of Judaism, spend so much time and social capital advocating on behalf of the roughly 800,000 Dreamers at risk of deportation. In case you didn’t know, very few of the Dreamers are Jews.

  5. Living the Mission: Values-Based Decision-Making and Reconstructing Judaism

    Ben Weiner knows how to pray.

    Raised in an Orthodox home, the 68-year-old former president of Temple Emmanuel in Wakefield, Massachusetts, has been an active synagogue-goer nearly his whole life. He’d long recited much of the service by heart, uttering Hebrew prayers for the coming of the messiah, the resurrection of the dead and thanked God for choosing the Jews to receive the Torah. Yet he’d never really delved into the meaning of the words or examined the extent to which they reflected his own beliefs.

    Until now.
