  1. Keeping Judaism Alive Behind Prison Walls

    In loyalty, you sustain the living, nurturing the life of everything, healing the sick, freeing the captive.

    Jessica Rosenberg, a senior at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in suburban Philadelphia, has often been inspired and troubled by these words of gratitude in the daily morning prayers. What does it mean that God frees the captive and heals the sick, knowing some people never achieve freedom or recover from certain illnesses? Does it mean that God only delivers some people and not others? Or should the words be interpreted metaphorically?

  3. 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.

  6. Joint Statement on Immigration

    The leadership of Reconstructing Judaism and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association condemn with horror the travesty that has become our immigration system under the administration of U.S. President Donald J. Trump. The “zero tolerance” policy that first saw young children ripped away from their parents as they attempted to seek asylum and safety in the United States—and now is holding families locked up in detention—is immoral and a disgrace to the American and Jewish values we hold dear.

  7. Reconstructionist Communities Make Disability Inclusion a Top Priority

  8. July Leadership Column

    I frequently describe myself as an evangelist for progressive religion. I spend much of my time making the case for why folks should belong. Why belong to any religion? Why belong to the Jewish people? Why belong to a synagogue? Why belong to the Reconstructionist movement?
