Creating Vibrant Congregations & Communities

The Union for Reform Judaism helps congregations and communities stay adept and agile, which enables them to proactively meet members' needs and expand the ways in which people live Jewishly.  

We develop leaders to face today’s adaptive challenges and nurture innovation to be responsive to changing needs. We also connect leaders to each other so they can learn from each other’s experience, and provide services that lower the cost of congregational operations. When needed, we provide personalized support for congregations in transition and crisis.

Leaders in Action

Transition & Crisis Support
