T

he Reconstructionist
approach to Judaism grew out
of the teachings of Mordechai
Kaplan, who defined Judaism as the
"evolving religious civilization of the
Jewish people."
Reconstructionist Jews recognize
that Judaism changes within the
framework of tradition. They strive to
create a Jewish way of life that encom-
passes the legacies of Judaism and of
contemporary American life.
They also believe that Judaism
includes cultural aspects, such as litur-
gy, music, literature, art, food and lan-
guage, in addition to religion.
Congregation T'chiyah is affiliated
with the Jewish Reconstructionist
Federation, the fastest growing Jewish
movement in the United States.

Congregation T'chiyah provides its
members with a feeling of connected-
ness not only to Judaism but to each
other as well. It is a relatively small
congregation that promotes a sense of
belonging among all members.
It provides opportunities for every-
one to participate, regardless of fluen-
cy in Hebrew or previous religious
training.
It values the diversity within our
heritage and welcomes active involve-
ment and commitment of all its mem-
bers — in member-led weekly
Shabbat services as well as holiday
services and life-cycle events celebrat-
ed by the congregation, in thought-
provoking discussions that are part of
services, and in learning sessions that
enhance synagogue life. E

Judy Harris is a member of

Congregation T'Chiyah.
