  1. The Reconstructionist Movement Comes Together in New Hinei Mah Tov Video

    As part of our recent convention, B’yachad: Reconstructing Judaism Together, we shared this video of a new setting for Hinei Mah Tov by RRC student Solomon Hoffman. It features over 150 Reconstructionists representing 40 of our communities from across North America and beyond. The participants reflect the spectrum of our movement—lay leaders, Rabbis, Cantors, students, teachers, children, elders, musicians, singers, dancers, artists—all sharing in this collective project.

  3. Reconstructing Judaism Statement

    ברוך אתה ה’ אלוהינו חי העולמים מתיר אסורים.

    Barukh atah adonay eloheynu hay ha’olamim matir asurim.

    Blessed are you, THE REDEEMER, our God, Life of all the worlds, who frees the captives.

    – From the morning liturgy

    What a terrible irony that on Shabbat Shirah, as Jews around the world read about the Israelites’ liberation from slavery, Rabbi Charlie Cytron-Walker and three other people were held hostage at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas in a standoff that lasted more than 11 hours.

  4. Society for Jewish Ethics

    The Reconstructionist movement is being well represented at the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Society of Jewish Ethics, taking place Jan. 6-9 over Zoom. In fact, in terms of the number of presenters —at least three — the movement will have a greater presence at this year’s virtual gathering than at any time since the first conference was held in 2003.

    Before Ritualwell was a website containing more than 2,200 liturgy and rituals crowdsourced by Jews, it was an idea of where to put dozens of scraps of paper in the drawers of offices in the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College and Kolot: Center for Jewish Women’s and Gender Studies in Wyncote.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
