Frequently Asked Questions

What is Reconstructionist Judaism?
Reconstructionists approach Judaism with deep consideration of the past and a passion to relate it to the present. In a rapidly changing world, Reconstructionist communities share and create new ways of being Jewish to connect us to the divine and one another and to ensure our lives are filled with purpose. Reconstructionist Judaism is founded on the values of human dignity and inclusivity and is committed to democratic practice in Jewish life. We believe that Jews hold the right to reconstruct Judaism in order for it to remain relevant in our lives.
