What is Reconstructionism?
Think of Reconstructionism as a bridge between Jewish tradition of old and contemporary Jewish life. We are a movement of people who wish to sustain the vibrant life of Judaism and to experience the richness of the treasury of Jewish tradition.

Reconstructionists come from varied walks of life and backgrounds. While some are new to Jewish commitment, others hail from traditional homes and synagogues. Many, too often excluded from synagogue life, find a warm welcome in Reconstructionist congregations.

Reconstructionists share a commitment to make Judaism their own by finding in it joy, meaning, and ideas they can believe. They wish to belong to caring communities of liberal Jews who take their Judaism seriously.
