  2. Community Teaching 11-21-2017 - Maurice Harris

    In this Community Learning call from November 21, 2017, Rabbi Maurice Harris talks about the strange way the Torah tells us about Moses’ up-close encounters with God, contradicting itself purposely within the space of nine verses. Two consecutive stories in the Book of Exodus confront us with a crucial paradox about how it is or isn’t possible to encounter the Divine, leaving us as readers with something like an “impossible” mental picture that we may be tempted to try to resolve or to hold as a fruitful paradox.

  4. JRF Israel Task Force Report

    This 2004 report from the Jewish Reconstructionist Federationemerged from a movement-wide process that solicited thoughtful input from Reconstructionists across the country. A dedicated committee of rabbis and lay people developed the positions and proposals laid out in the report. While the Task Force’s proposals were never implemented, our revived Israel Task Force will be using the 2004 report as our foundation for moving forward. While much has changed since it was written., most of the earlier report’s framework and recommendations are still compelling and sound.
