Immersive Experiences: Shaping Our Jewish Future

The URJ coordinates a network of youth programs across North America that promote community, spiritual growth, and lifelong friendship, motivating more young Jews to embrace Jewish living as a path to meaning, purpose, and joy.

Why Advocacy is Central to Reform Judaism

It has become axiomatic that to be a Jew is to care about the world around us. To be a Reform Jew is to hear the voice of the prophets in our head; to be engaged in the ongoing work of tikkun olam; to strive to improve the world in which we live.
