Significant Jewish Books

In November 1997, Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie unveiled an initiative to encourage every Reform Jew to read significant Jewish books. Since then, the Union has selected eight volumes each year and prepared study guides for them.  These discussion guides are a great resource for a self-facilitated adult education series. You may also be interested in study guides for issues of Reform Judaism magazine.

Starting in November 2009, the Significant Jewish Books initiative is moving into the blogosphere. Join our "virtual book club", by reading and commenting on blog posts on the latest selections.
