    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.

  4. Recon - Most misunderstood movement (Steven Carr Reuben)

    For those who are curious, here are five simple keys to understanding the philosophy and beliefs of Reconstructionist Judaism. All five are easily remembered by simply keeping in mind the unique definition of Judaism first expressed by Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan in his groundbreaking book, Judaism as a Civilization, published in 1934.

  6. Kaplan and the Meaning of Ritual

    Even for those of us who are skeptical about God's role in human history, Jewish ritual can be sacred and holy. I was in Israel not long ago on a UJA Young Leadership Mission. During a morning meeting with our Israeli peers, we turned to the subject of Jewish ritual.

  9. Shavuot: The Harvest Festival of Torah

    A good case can be made for Shavuot being the most important of all the Jewish festivals. The revival of its observance is of particular concern to Reconstructionist Jews because our understanding of the nature and task of the Jewish people in the world and of what God should mean to us cannot be separated from our reinterpretation of the meaning of Torah. Shavuot is the festival of the giving and the receiving of Torah — of Torah as revelation, as law and as study. The word “Torah” means teaching, guidance, instruction, orientation.

  10. Ruth, the First Convert (DT Shavuot)

    We soon celebrate Shavuot, called in our tradition “zman matan Torataynu,” the season of the giving of our Torah. It is a pleasant coincidence that the Torah reading for the Shabbat immediately preceding Shavuot is usually ”BaMidbar” (“In the wilderness”). Rabbinic tradition asserts that the Torah was given in the wilderness to demonstrate that it was not the property of a landed tribe but rather was available to anyone who chose to claim it as theirs.
