  1. Stay Strong for your Startup Edgeblog

    If you’ve never stepped into a mikveh (Jewish ritual bath), I can tell you from experience it is an exercise in vulnerability more intense than just leaving your clothes in the locker room. The full nakedness of immersion comes from letting go of the protections layered around your heart and spirit. Stepping down into the living water requires you to be strong enough to be vulnerable, open to whatever rushes in.

  2. Adapt (Not Just Adopt): A Conversation with Hebrew University Professor Jonathan Mirvis about Social and Commercial Entrepreneurship for Jewish Education

    What do you know that the rest of us don’t?”

    This is the question I am posing to today’s halutzim—the pioneers who are reshaping the Jewish landscape to more effectively nurture the generations. I’m differentiating the practice of leading game changers and status quo leaders. In each interview with a pioneer, I hear a tool, an assumption, or a virtue that I’m certain is not in general use in the Jewish community. This week, on a call to Jerusalem, I discovered someone is way ahead of me on this quest.

  4. Deborah April Column

    What does a thriving synagogue look like? I was recently asked to be on a panel at a conference on this topic. To prepare, I sat down — in true Reconstructionist style —with Seth Rosen, the chair of our board of governors; Tresa Grauer, who was recently promoted to become vice president for thriving communities; and almost-rabbi Micah Weiss, who will graduate from RRC in June, and just started working with us as assistant director of the Thriving Communities department and tikkun olam specialist.

  6. Rabbi Elliott Tepperman: Bringing a Community-Organizing Model to the Pulpit

    Having spent her career in journalism and Jewish communal service, working for organizations such as Hadassah and HIAS, Roberta Elliott was always deeply engaged with her Jewish identity and the wider world. Before 2006, as she tells it, direct social action hadn’t been a major focus of her life.

    Then she joined Bnai Keshet, a Reconstructionist synagogue in Montclair, N.J., and soon all that would change.

  8. Statement on Shooting at Chabad of Poway

    Reconstructing Judaism and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association send our deepest condolences and wishes of refu’ah shlaymah — full and complete healing — to all who were affected by the shooting at Chabad of Poway, Calif. We are keenly aware that the shooting happened not only on Shabbat, the Jewish day of rest, and the eighth day of Passover, the Jewish celebration of liberation from oppression, but also on the sixth month anniversary of the terrible shooting in Pittsburgh.

  9. Why We Have to Talk About It

    When I was growing up, it was common to hear and see religious leaders whose faith compelled them to stand up in the public square to join the struggle for peace and social justice. Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Phillip and Daniel Berrigan, Father Robert Drinan and Father Francis P. Duffy, Rev. William Sloane Coffin and the Catholic nuns and other religious figures who marched with Dr.
