  1. G'milut Hesed Landing

    G’milut Hesed, acts of kindess, involves loyalty, dependability and caring for others in need. It arises not merely from friendship or personal feeling, but from a sense of obligation. Jewish communities have long made it the business of every member to visit the sick, care for elders, comfort mourners, welcome guests, and celebrate the formation of new families and the welcoming of children.  Actions like these are the glue that holds a covenantal community together. They are the cause, not the result, of closer connections between people.

  3. Tzedakah Landing

    The word tzedakah, often translated as “charity,” comes from the Hebrew root tzedek, meaning “justice.” Its current usage was developed by the early rabbis, who recognized that the distribution of resources that results from a free-market economy must be adjusted by other means to ensure a fair society. Tzedakah is an expression of justice rather than mercy; its purpose is to create a fairer distribution of resources.

  8. Reconstructionism - Believing Landing

    Reconstructionists hold diverse ideas about God, but we share an emphasis on Godliness—those hopes, beliefs, and values within us that impel us to work for a better world, that give us strength and solace in times of need, that challenge us to grow, and that deepen our joy in moments of celebration. Recognizing that all descriptions of God are metaphor, our prayerbooks offer images of God that go far beyond “king of the universe.”

    • Reconstructionism - Belonging Landing

      The idea of Jewish peoplehood is central to Reconstructionism. Jews share binding ties that cut across differing practice, beliefs, and national boundaries, binding us together through a common history and shared destiny. At the same time, Reconstructionists reject the traditional notion of Jews as the Chosen People: we take pride in our distinctiveness and sense of vocation at the same time as we affirm the dignity and potential sanctity of all faiths and peoples.

      • Reconstructionism - Behaving Landing

        Judaism is an evolving religious civilization. For it to remain living, we must reach out and take hold of Jewish practice, reshape it, and make it new for each generation. Reconstructionist communities study our inherited traditions and shape their practices with the assumption that the past has a vote, but not a veto.
