    For Reconstructionists, Judaism is not just a philosophy. Lived Jewish experience is at the core of Jewish peoplehood. Reconstructionists learn from traditional practice, adapting it to our era, so that we can:

    • Mark important moments in our lives

    • Create and share creative works of beauty and insight

    • Mark important moments in our lives

    • Imbue each week, and the seasons of each year, with meaning and consciousness

    Reconstructionist communities pray, learn, celebrate, and take action together. In our congregations, havurot and camp, we take bold risks and firm stands in order to help Torah, Jewish practice, culture and community evolve to meet the needs of today’s diverse progressive Jews and fellow travellers.

  5. Reconstructionism Landing

    Reconstructionists approach Judaism — and life — with deep reverence for the past and a passion to relate it to the present. In a rapidly changing world, Reconstructionist communities share and create new ways of being Jewish to connect us to the divine and ensure our lives are filled with purpose.

    • We view Judaism as the evolving civilization of the Jewish people in an ongoing relationship with God. Our shared culture — rituals, traditions and practices — reflect over 3,000 years of that evolution, and we continue to share and shape it today.

  6. Dialogues Landing

    Dialogues are an occasional feature bringing together many voices to examine a specific topic. In Cutting Edge Judaism, we brought together longtime Reconstructionist leaders with newer voices from within and beyond the movement, in a 3-week series on articles and recorded interviews. And in Israel & Zionism, we solicited a wide range of Reconstructionist voices across the ideological spectrum to express perspectives on Israel at a particular historical moment.

  8. Kaplan on Creation DT Bereyshit

    The account in Genesis is perplexing to the modern person. We inevitably get bogged down with the first chapter of the Bible because it seems to conflict with our knowledge that comes from the scientific study of the natural world. Mordecai Kaplan being the modern man par-excellence accepted the scientific view of the universe but realized, of course, that the Torah has a different perspective in telling us about the origin of things. In this selection he focuses on the connection between the creation of the world and God's attention to Israel.

  9. Shabbat and Holiness DT Bereyshit

    This week's parashah is the first in the Torah, Bereyshit. We are all familiar with the story of the creation that we read in these chapters of the Torah. However, the narrative still raised many questions for our rabbis and scholars. One of the many issues debated by the rabbis is the timing of humanity's creation in relationship to Shabbat. Rashi (12th century France) believed that God created Adam right before Shabbat so that he could immediately enter the holy and peaceful realm of Shabbat.

  10. Ethics and Values Landing

    Jewish tradition is imbued with values that bear on every important decision we face. What are my obligations to my community? How should I handle charitable giving in a world overwhelmed by human need?  How do I navigate decisions on issues ranging from sexual ethics and gender identity to end-of-life decisions?
