  1. Provide for Yourself a Rabbi

    “Provide for Yourself a Rabbi” (Pirkei Avot 1:6)

    As Reconstructionists, we talk all the time about creating Jewish community — whether we are building and sustaining our home congregations; seeking connection with other Jews and the people who love us beyond our own walls; or trying to nurture emerging expressions of Jewish communal life on college campuses, in other non-synagogue settings and even on the internet.

  3. Jewish Particularism & Universalism: R' Deborah Waxman interviewed by R' Shmuly Yanklowitz

    Why did Rabbi Deborah Waxman, Ph.D, president of Reconstructing Judaism, choose a career in the rabbinate? How did she arrive at her personal theology?

  4. Commission on Homosexuality Report 1992

    In 1992, the Federation of Reconstructionist Congregations and Havurot released a report entitled Homosexuality And Judaism: The Reconstructionist Position, a document affirming the humanity and equality of gay and lesbian Jews and advocating for inclusion and welcome in all areas of Jewish life — a forthright stance that put Reconstructionism in the vanguard of religious organizations at that time.

  6. Rooted and Relevant Haberman lecture

    As the pandemic has made clear, we are in an era of unprecedented social upheaval. Our political, social and communal institutions are challenged by a breakdown in civil discourse and democratic values, rising extremist movements, the need to reckon with systemic racial injustice, and an existential climate threat. To meet this century’s new realities, our institutions must adapt and evolve to promote democracy, foster meaningful conversations, and join together to ensure that all people are treated with dignity and respect.

  7. Building the Jewish Future

    My rabbinical career has been anything but planned. I would be a career counselor’s worst nightmare: the conventional ladder of professional advancement has never suited me. Instead, I’ve tried to think boldly about what the Jewish community needs, and have done my best to build institutions that could address those needs.

  8. Perhaps You Belong in a Reconstructionist Community

  9. America's First Bat Mitzvah podcast promo

    Many Jews have heard that the first bat mitzvah celebration took place in 1922 in a Reconstructionist congregation — and that the first girl to become a bat mitzvah was Judith Kaplan, daughter of Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of Reconstructionist Judaism.  Much less familiar are the historical factors leading to that moment, or why it took several more decades before the bat mitzvah as we know it to take root.

  10. Judaism on the Cutting Edge

    The only surprise about my decision to become a rabbi was my choice of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. Everything about my activities and commitments throughout my life made this seem logical to the people who knew and loved me—except that I had been raised in another movement. For me, however, I was either going to RRC or choosing a different career.
