  2. Reconstructionist Affiliates, Rabbis Push for More Just Immigration System

    Members of Bet Am Shalom in White Plains, N.Y., a few years ago, embarked on a quintessentially Reconstructionist process. In a deliberate and participatory fashion, the community, guided by its Tikkun Olam Chevra, chose one issue on which to focus its education, advocacy and direct service efforts. The options — hunger, economic inequality, climate change and immigration — represented large, social problems with systematic and political dimensions.

  3. Brief Asking Federal Court to Reverse Ruling Allowing Strip Searches of Female Inmates As Training Exercise

    Reconstructing Judaism and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Assocation joined an amicus brief in Henry v. Hulett submitted by Muslim Advocates,  asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to re-hear and reverse a ruling that found that staff at an Illinois prison did not violate the Constitution when they forced female inmates to engage in a deeply humiliating and dehumanizing strip search as part of a training exercise.

  4. Congregation Dor Hadash was a target for its immigrant advocacy — and the shooting did not stop that work

    A year after the antisemitic, anti-immigrant attack on the Tree of Life synagogue, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Reconstructionist Congregation Dor Hadash has responded by doubling down on its commitment to help refugees, immigrants and asylum seekers. “We who are still alive have an obligation to honor the memory of those who are no longer with us by doing acts of loving kindness, doing socially conscious things to make the world a better place. That’s how Dor Hadash operates,” said Dan Leger, the Dor Hadash member injured in the shooting.

  5. Welcoming a Guest Into a Sanctuary Congregation

    “One who destroys one life destroys the entire world. One who saves one life saves an entire world.” This famous dictum from rabbinic literature — a midrash on the story of Cain and Abel — teaches about the preciousness of human life. It is a dictum that to me has new meaning since my congregation, Temple Beth Hatfiloh (TBH), welcomed our guest into physical sanctuary.

  6. Please Join in the National Refugee Shabbat 2020

    Dear friends—

    We are deeply moved by the resilience and clarity of the members of Pittsburgh’s Dor Hadash for their commitment to participating in HIAS’s National Refugee Shabbat again this year. We urge every Reconstructionist community to stand with Dor Hadash and HIAS this coming March by participating in this powerful program. In this way, we act on our values and gain strength from each other to create the world in which we want to live.

    With blessings and appreciation,
