    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. Who Was Korakh DT Lewis Eron

    During the forty years in the wilderness, Moses faced a number of challenges to his leadership. Some arose out of our ancestors’ sense of loss and deprivation. Others centered on issues of policy.
