The Union for Reform Judaism strives to create a more whole, just, and compassionate world. We motivate people from diverse backgrounds to participate and deepen their engagement in Jewish life; create a more inclusive Jewish community; help congregations stay adept and agile; develop teen and adult leaders to lead transformation for the future; foster meaningful connections to Israel; and agitate for a more progressive society.
We believe that a Jewish state must be a democratic state that celebrates the pluralism of Jewish practice and identity. We celebrate the notion of, the unity of the Jewish people.
The URJ helps build vibrant congregations and strong communities We help congregations stay relevant and innovative, supporting them by helping to make easier to run the congregation and make the changes necessary to expand the way in which people can live Jewishly.
The URJ stands for a Judaism that is inclusive and reflective of a wide range of identities and, through a focused effort on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) work, accepts the responsibility of dismantling oppression both inside and outside of our communities.
