  1. Seth leadership column May 2018

    Part of my “elevator speech” answer to the question “What is Reconstructionist Judaism?” has been the familiar, almost catchphrase: “Reconstructionists believe that Judaism is the evolving civilization of the Jewish people.” On a really short elevator ride, that could be the entire speech, leaving the person who asked the question slightly puzzled and really no better informed than they were when we left the lobby.

  2. Reclaiming Judaism After Centuries Underground

    The mountain town of Serrastretta in the Calabria region of southern Italy is not an obvious place to find a synagogue, let alone a Reconstructionist one. But beneath the Catholic surface of this remote community lies a surprising Jewish legacy: Many families are descended from b’nei anusim, Jews who underwent forced conversion to Catholicism during the Inquisition.

  3. Reconstructionist Communities Make Disability Inclusion a Top Priority

  4. July Leadership Column

    I frequently describe myself as an evangelist for progressive religion. I spend much of my time making the case for why folks should belong. Why belong to any religion? Why belong to the Jewish people? Why belong to a synagogue? Why belong to the Reconstructionist movement?

  5. Seth Rosen Aug 6

    In the last several weeks, two experiences, both of them ongoing, have made clear to me the power and persistency of “gathering” as a lynchpin of building and sustaining a spiritual community within the Reconstructionist movement. By “gathering,” I mean physically gathering—being together at the same time, in the same place, for one another and with one another.

  6. The Founding of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College

    This piece was originally commissioned by the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association, which published a version of it in the Summer 2018 edition of  Connection, the association’s newsletter. Part II of this history will appear later this academic year in Reconstructing Judaism Today.

  7. Evolve: Sowing the Seeds of Constructive Evolution

  8. In Praise of Movements

    Two November events loom as I write this column: the mid-term elections on November 6, and the first Reconstructionist movement-wide convention in a decade, a week later.  The first admittedly will have far more impact on the world than the latter, but they are linked in my mind for one important reason: movements matter.

    Pluralism is dead. Long live pluralism.

  10. Deborah April Column

    What does a thriving synagogue look like? I was recently asked to be on a panel at a conference on this topic. To prepare, I sat down — in true Reconstructionist style —with Seth Rosen, the chair of our board of governors; Tresa Grauer, who was recently promoted to become vice president for thriving communities; and almost-rabbi Micah Weiss, who will graduate from RRC in June, and just started working with us as assistant director of the Thriving Communities department and tikkun olam specialist.
