For the last two years JRF has partnered with the Jewish Funds for Justice and some of JRF's own leading rabbis and lay leaders in the field of congregation-based community organizing to help promote and develop spiritually activist communities. Two conference calls were held last February in conjunction with a national CBCO training conference sponsored by JFSJ in Santa Clara, CA. This call is for anyone who is interested or has embarked on this powerful method of social justice organizing in faith community.
Join us for PEARL: Providing Education and Resources for Leadership.
Determining values that underlie congregational life can provide the framework for a viable approach to engaging and vibrant Judaism. Values-based decision making (VBDM) and similar processes can help to make your congregation uniquely Reconstructionist – this workshop will present models of how.

This call will explore best practices for creating committees and buy-in for effective social justice work in our congregations, including integrated youth and adult education and tikkun programming, as well as service-learning, decision-making and advocacy outside our communities.
