7:00 p.m. “90 Years of Reconstructionism: Remembering The Past, Living In The Present and Shaping The Future” will be Rabbi Rachlis’ topic at Shabbat services, led by Rabbi Rachlis and Cantor Braier, as we look back and ahead at the many ways in which Reconstructionist Judaism has shaped our Jewish lives and American Judaism as a whole. Reconstructionism’s founder Rabbi Mordechai Kaplan wrote his magnum opus “Judaism As A Civilization” in 1934, which revolutionized the way that Jews from all denominations began to rethink what a modern, rational, and relevant Judaism could be.

Through Reconstructionism, Kaplan created a non-supernaturalistic and humanistic form of Judaism that attracted those who could no longer literally believe in the traditional stories of the Torah nor a God that suspends the laws of nature and is in control of reality. For both those who know a little or a lot about Kaplan and Reconstructionism, this will be an opportunity to learn much more and to have your questions answered.
