  1. On the Passing of Amos Oz

    Reconstructing Judaism and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association mourn the passing of Amos Oz, z’l, who has died of cancer at age 79. Oz was born in Jerusalem in 1939, and he spent many of his formative years at Kibbutz Hulda in central Israel, where he lived until 1986. The author of 40 books and countless articles and essays, Oz was, in the words of Israel’s President, Reuven Rivlin, “… a literary titan. Splendor of our creators. A humanities giant.” His writing has been translated into 45 languages, and the list of literary prizes he won is incredibly long.

  4. A Jewish Approach to Obligatory Giving

    (Reprinted from Congregations Magazine, The Alban Institute, Nov/Dec 2001. This piece was written by Bob Leventhal and Rabbi Shawn Zevit)

    The rabbi squirms in his seat when a leader suggests that he engage in fundraising. Perennially vocal board members grow silent when it is time to follow up with congregants about their financial obligations. The topic of money makes us uncomfortable. But no organized religion has ever been without a need for resources or an expectation of offerings, dues, or taxes to support its institutions.

  5. Dialogue Episode 2 Transcript

  6. Sometimes You Have to Close Your Eyes and Leap

    As a child I was never much of a risk taker. I was so afraid of the water that I didn’t even learn to swim until I was nearly a teenager. I was also definitely an introvert as a child: while I did have a few good friends, I was never really comfortable with most group activities. Other than music and a passion to learn drums and percussion, my favorite pastimes were either reading by myself (I still follow my regimen of reading at least 50 books every year), or hanging out at my synagogue, where I always felt comfortable, at home, and safe.

  8. Community Guidelines for Commenting

    Community Guidelines

    • Be respectful of other commenters. Meeting differences of opinion with civil discussion encourages multiple perspectives and a positive commenting environment.  Remember to criticize ideas, not people. Avoid name-calling and ad hominem attacks. Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the quality of the conversation.
      • “Do not be scornful of any person.” Pirkei Avot 4:3
