Congregations are at the forefront of the Reform Movement's social action work, from direct service to local advocacy. With the help of our clergy and congregations, the work of the Religious Action Center has been able to grow and make a positive impact in communities around North America.
The Balfour Brickner Clergy Seminar and Fellowship Program is designed exclusively to help Rabbis and Cantors bring social justice closer to the center of congregational life. Fellows will gain foundational learning and skills to become effective social justice leaders.
