Jewish Life

It’s vibrant, varied and values-driven. It's about Torah texts, holidays, tikkun olam (social justice), Israel, the arts and food (of course!). Jewish life in Reconstructionist communities combines the wisdom of tradition with contemporary insights and democratic ideals. Find a new tune for an ancient verse, a prayer for AIDS awareness on Shabbat, or a strategy for integrating spirituality and social action.

The holidays section offers wisdom and activities for congregants of all ages, across the Jewish calendar.
