Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation is a 500-plus household congregation known for its joyful spirituality, intellectual curiosity, inclusivity, and deep commitment to social justice.
We have built a highly acclaimed green building, and our rabbi has been heralded by Newsweek magazine as one of the top 25 pulpit rabbis in the United States. But most of all, JRC is about people - our members. Our congregation is as diverse as the American Jewish community, including observant and nonobservant Jews, interfaith families, blended families, people of color, gays and lesbians, believers and nonbelievers.
