The Voice of the Reform Movement
The Union for Reform Judaism represents a vibrant network of nearly 850 Reform synagogues across North America, which foster serious Jewish learning, sacred community, and prophetic justice. As the central address for this congregational network, the URJ speaks on behalf of the entire Reform Movement on a wide range of topics ranging from Jewish observance and ritual, community relations, social justice and much more.
Through our public relations efforts, the URJ expands the reach of our member congregations via the URJ’s trusted leaders, who are quoted frequently in the Jewish and mainstream press and serve to elevate the Reform Movement's values of diversity, inclusion, modernity. Follow the URJ and Reform Movement leaders on social media.
