Reconstructing Judaism


Wondering what it means to be "San Francisco's First and Only Reconstructionist Congregation"? Reconstructing Judaism is a movement that began in the early twentieth century out of the Conservative movement, aiming to create a more progressive Judaism that was adaptable to modernity without comprising the heart and soul of what it means to be Jewish. Reconstructing Judaism provides many resources discussing our radical theology, Jewish perspectives on important issues, and what we can do with our Judaism in these trying political times. Check out the links below to discover more about Reconstructing Judaism!



Reconstructing Judaism is officially rolling out an exciting new project, Evolve: Groundbreaking Jewish Conversations. The Evolve site contains essays and resources meant to serve as the bases for ongoing conversations about challenging topics. Click here to find insightful essays, study guides, sermon sparks and text resources about seven urgent issues of our day: 

1. Jewish Approaches to Justice Work

2. Harnessing Technology

3. Why Be Jewish?

4. Redefining Jewish Identity

5. Judaism and Race

6. Cultivating Constructive Conversations about Israel/Palestine

7. Reimagining Jewish Community

Reconstructing Judaism hopes that Evolve will be a site for open-hearted communication about these issues; we encourage you to write or video responses that we can add to these conversations. Please share your responses with us here.
