  2. God Loves the Stranger: Introduction

    God Loves the Stranger

    —Deuteronomy 10:18

    When I take these words deeply into my being, my flesh and blood, there is enormous relief. I am no longer struggling to protect the limited ideas I have about who I am. I am no longer projecting endlessly limited ideas of who you are. I am free. No one is a stranger. Everyone including my so-called enemies is an infinitely complex and precious creature. My labels, categories, and strategies to protect myself from them are paltry in comparison with their sacred mystery.

  3. Yom Kippur at Lincoln Memorial

    (from God Loves the Stranger)

    Today is a day of repentance, renewal, and solidarity.

    Repentance in Hebrew is T’shuvah, which means turning and returning—making an about-face.

    It is a most treasured human gift.

    One who turns around and heads in the right direction Is respected and appreciated.

    Indeed, when we say that we are lost, it is often the beginning of the journey home.

    The Source of Life, the Divine Beloved, calls us to return, calls us to T’shuvah, again and again.

  6. Plenum

    What Is the Plenum?

    The plenum of the Reconstructionist movement is a group of representatives from each affiliated congregation and havurah who discuss and share the issues of the day, both internal movement discussions and thoughts on the movement’s relationship to the world. In order to foster that kind of discussion, the goal is to create a stable group, where representatives stay engaged with the plenum for a couple of years or more.

  7. Where Prayer Meets Justice

    In September, 2011, T’ruah, the organization I lead, brought seventeen rabbis to Immokalee, FL to visit workers in the tomato fields, not long ago considered ground zero for modern-day slavery in the United States. For two days, we sat with members of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, farmworkers who have organized themselves into one of the most effective workers’ groups in the country.

  8. Cutting Edge Dialogue Opening Tab

    Reconstructionist Judaism originated as a cutting edge call to change and innovation in the Jewish community. Our fundamental commitment to adaptation remains central to our mission. In August 2015, we opened a dialogue on that legacy of engaging with, and sometimes pushing, established boundaries. What opportunities and challenges arise from being on the cutting edge? How has that approach shaped the Reconstructionist and broader Jewish communities, as the 21st century unfolds before us?
