Reconstructionism is a stream of American Judaism that takes on the challenge of keeping Judaism relevant to our lives.  Reconstructionist Judaism respects the richness of our traditions, but also recognizes that sometimes those traditions are no longer tenable or meaningful in our times.  In those cases we reconstruct practices to fit our contemporary values and lifestyles. 

Will I Be Comfortable in a Reconstructionist Synagogue?

Reconstructionism is a relatively small movement within Judaism, but a big tent.  No matter your Jewish background or your connection to the Jewish people, you will recognize yourself in our community, and you'll get to be yourself in the company of some pretty great other people. Regardless of your gender, age, sexual preference, gender identity, race or ethnicity, or religion you are welcome to pray, study and celebrate with us. You'll find our approach to Judaism is creative, egalitarian, and focused on building strong connections among us.
