  1. Post About Welcome Poster

    Dear friends across the Reconstructionist movement,

    These are challenging and uncertain times. One of the things we’ve been hearing a lot from lay leaders and rabbis in many of our communities is the desire to reaffirm and strengthen our shared Jewish values of diversity, inclusion, respect, and welcoming. During the recent meeting of the Plenum, for example, some participants spoke about their congregations’ desire to stand up to bigotry and intimidation in light of the recent increase in acts of hate against various minority communities, including our own.

  2. Refugee Statement - Trump Executive Order

  3. Politics from the Pulpit

    This year our synagogue is raising up the value of Tikkun Olam – our responsibility to take action to repair the world. If we take seriously our responsibility to repair the brokenness of the world, we have to look at problems that are too big for us to resolve on our own. For example, no matter how much we recycle or conserve energy as individuals, global warming requires systemic responses including governing bodies and cultural change.

  6. The First Reconstructionist Birthright Journey

     
    At the very beginning of the first ever Reconstructionist Birthright trip, our tour guide instructed our group to use the word journey when referring to these 10 days in Israel. Though it sounded hokey, I knew that Birthright wanted all of its participants to leave Israel feeling some sort of impact on their personal development. What I didn’t know was that these 10 days truly would become a journey, not only for myself but also for my fellow young Reconstructionist Jews.

  7. Statement on Terrorist Attack in Quebec

    We at RRC/Jewish Reconstructionist Communities grieve for the victims of yesterday’s terrorist attack on worshipers at the Grande Mosquée de Québec. We stand in solidarity with people who are Muslim in Canada and around the world to mourn this horrific loss and to end violence and terrorism. An attack on one holy space is an attack on the sanctity of all holy spaces.

  8. Journeys: Thinking About the Big Picture: What Congregations Need

  9. Light Through The Cracks - DW

    Recently on the radio, I listened to the new president vigorously assert his belief in the effectiveness of torture. This is not news: he had made his views on the topic clear as a candidate. But this radio report was further evidence, piled onto President Trump’s intimidation of the media and his assertions that falsehoods are truths and truths falsehoods, that we are living in a new reality, where the leader of the free world champions the practices of despots and dictators.
