Many more Reform synagogues are in the process of considering joining community organizing groups. Conservative, Reconstructionist, and Orthodox synagogues also engage in congregation-based community organizing.

Are you missing from this list? Let us know!

If there is no community organizing group near you, we still want to hear from you. New organizing groups form with some frequency—based largely on levels of local interest. Please contact Just Congregations. We may already have heard from other congregations in your area.
