Building Communities

There is no greater vibration proof of Reform Judaism* today than the growth and reemergence of congregations and communities around the world.

The World Union is instrumental in this historic renewal, by its support for building and maintaining reform communities through congregation and leadership development with inspirational youth programming and the promotion of Jewish values and ideals.

In the former Soviet Union and in central and eastern Europe, after nearly a century of religious oppression, the World Union is a driving force for growth among both new and existing congregations.

In Israel, the heartland of the Jewish people, the World Union answers the call for religious pluralism with Reform programs and institutions. The World Union presence grows in Latin America, Australia and countries throughout Asia as well.

Support for Reform community building also includes the purchase and construction of synagogues in order to provide permanent spiritual and physical homes for our Jewish communities worldwide.
