Every two years Reform Jews gather at the URJ's flagship conference, the URJ Biennial, to totally immerse themselves in Judaism, taking time to explore synagogue life and gather new ideas; study with scholars and celebrate with friends. See highlights from URJ Biennial 2019. The next Biennial will be held in Washington, D.C. (National Harbor), December 8-11, 2021!

Find out more about the URJ Event Participant Code of Conduct.

As a result of the evolving COVID-19 situation, the URJ canceled all in-person activities for summer 2020 and continues to monitor the pandemic in order to determine the future of scheduled programming for the rest of 2020 and beyond. See our Calendar of Virtual Events and learn more about digital programming for children and families.
