Be like the disciples of Aaron, loving peace and pursuing peace, loving people and bringing them closer to Torah. - Pirkei Avot 1:12

URJ What We Do lead

The Union for Reform Judaism strengthens congregations and communities that connect people to Jewish life. Our legacy, reach, leadership, and vision ensure we can unite thousands of years of tradition with modern experience to strengthen Judaism today and for future generations.

Audacious Hospitality

Expanding Our Reach

We work actively to engage uninspired and unafilliated Jews, partnering with our congregations and other Movement institutions to eliminate the barriers that previously prevented them from finding their place in Judaism.

Conferences & Events

Join us for exciting and inspiring events, workshops, and conferences throughout the year.

Repairing the World

Through advocacy campaigns, hands-on volunteering opportunities, and training for leaders, the URJ galvanizes people throughout North America to ensure religious freedom, pluralism, acceptance, and justice.

Strengthening Congregations

We help congregations and communities stay adept and agile, enabling them to meet members' needs proactively, and expand the ways people can live Jewishly. 

Investing in the Jewish Future

We coordinate a network of youth programs across North America and in Israel that promote community, spiritual growth, and lifelong friendships, motivating more young Jews to embrace Jewish living as a path to meaning, purpose, and joy.
