    [This article has been updated since its original posting on November 6, 2018]

    Rabbi Erin Hirsh, ’00, grew up in the Squirrel Hill section of Pittsburgh. Hirsh and her family attended a Reform synagogue. While in high school, she heard something a little out of the ordinary from her friends: They loved their Jewish community and going to services.

  2. Wrestling With... DT Vayishlakh SPN

    (This week’s parashah, Vayishlah, tells the story of the reuniting of Yaakov and Esau, which is preceded by Yaakov’s night-long wrestling encounter on the banks of the Jabbok with a mysterious man/angel. This is my interpretation of this parashah and the “sequel” to an earlier commentary I wrote on an imagined Esau-Cain encounter from parashat Vayetzey.)

  4. In Praise of Movements

    Two November events loom as I write this column: the mid-term elections on November 6, and the first Reconstructionist movement-wide convention in a decade, a week later.  The first admittedly will have far more impact on the world than the latter, but they are linked in my mind for one important reason: movements matter.

  5. Diving Into the Tank: Spotlighting Social Entrepreneurship Models at Convention

    What ideas are Jewish communities exploring to reach unengaged and under-engaged populations in new ways and spaces? What conversations are taking place about how to fund such ideas? How can communities gain the confidence to try, and possibly fail, in order to implement the next idea?
