Reconstructing Judaism

TBS has been affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist Movement since the mid-90’s. The diverse nature of our membership required us to find a way to meet the needs of a group of people with wide-ranging levels of Jewish practice and observance. Reconstructing Judaism’s philosophy and approach to practical Judaism makes it possible for our members to practice and participate at their own comfort level. In 2012, our affiliation task force explored the options of affiliating with another movement or disaffiliating altogether. After researching all of the options, the task force determined that affiliation with Reconstructioning Judaism continues to be the right choice for our community.
