  1. About Us

    Reconstructionist Judaism sees Judaism as the evolving religious civilization of the Jewish people in its ongoing relationship with God. Our rituals, customs, laws, sacred texts and practices reflect that evolution. We seek ways of living that reveal holiness and godliness in the world, and see the tradition as having a vote, not a veto in that quest. Seeing innovation and adaptation as deeply traditional, we cultivate and support Jewish living, learning, and leadership for a changing world.

  6. Medical Science - Coronavirus

    The high esteem for medical science that one finds in Jewish sources contradicts the notion that there is an inherent conflict between religion and science.
