Racial Justice

The Reform Movement works in partnership with representatives from diverse communities to fight the structural racism that is embedded in our society and to advance justice for all people.

Separation of Church and State

The First Amendment to the Constitution is the cornerstone of American religious freedom, ensuring through the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause that the government does not support religious practices.

Health Care and Congress

Health Care

Millions of Americans live without health insurance, and attacks on the Affordable Care Act and other areas of the health care system have resulted in millions of people without health insurance.

Economic Justice

The Reform Movement has always acted upon fundamental Jewish ideals by advocating for children, the poor, the disenfranchised, the elderly, the sick, those with disabilities, and the "stranger among us."

Resurfacing the Conversation About Reparations

June 15, 2021
It is well understood that there is no amount of money that can be paid to right the wrongs of the many atrocities and genocides that have warranted the payment of reparations. But to truly begin to heal the wounds caused by over 400 years of inequities and dehumanization, acknowledgment, a truth and reconciliation process, apology, and reparations would be places to start. Watch the recent webinar series "Understanding Reparations" to learn more.

Rhode Island Congregation Helps Win Two Anti-Poverty Laws

June 15, 2021
For years, the Social Action Committee at Temple Sinai in Cranston, Rhode Island, did things like making sandwiches for hungry people — and we do believe that such relief programs are important — but we also wanted to really speak up for the poor. To do more than treat the symptoms of poverty, we decided to take action on poverty’s root causes.
