Cardin (D-MD) for their leadership in introducing the Burma Unified through Rigorous Military Accountability Act of 2021 or the BURMA Act. This legislation comes at a critical moment for all of the people of Burma, including the Rohingya people, and we call on every member of Congress to support this bill’s passage without delay.

  5. Statement on the No Fear Rally

    Although Reconstructing Judaism has not been asked to participate in the No Fear rally, and has therefore had no opportunity to participate in its messaging or planning, we endorse it in principle because we are firmly opposed to antisemitism and, in our efforts to foster engaged and substantive Jewish life and in our tikkun olam and public square work, we act continuously to counter it.  We believe that antisemitism is a scourge that must be forcefully denounced.

  10. America's First Bat Mitzvah podcast promo

    Many Jews have heard that the first bat mitzvah celebration took place in 1922 in a Reconstructionist congregation — and that the first girl to become a bat mitzvah was Judith Kaplan, daughter of Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of Reconstructionist Judaism.  Much less familiar are the historical factors leading to that moment, or why it took several more decades before the bat mitzvah as we know it to take root.
