Luah 5775
Keeping track of the how-tos and when-tos of traditional services can be confusing; a luah beit knesset is an annual publication that lists those details. USCJ's luah for 5775 is shipping now. This year, the luah is available in three versions: a printed, spiral-bound book; an interactive web version; and an iOS version, optimized for iPhone and iPad.  




Welcome, Rabbi Rabin!
As of September 2, Rabbi Joshua Rabin is USCJ's new Director of Kehilla Enrichment. He is one of the most innovative young leaders in Conservative Judaism and believes, as we do, that our dynamic approach to Jewish living is ideally suited to engaging and inspiring today's Jews. You can learn a lot about Rabbi Rabin's outlook by reading his cover story, "The Optimistic Movement," in the Fall 2014 issue of CJ:Voices magazine. 

Recognize an Emerging Leader!
The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism is excited to announce the creation of the Shoshana S. Cardin Leadership Award. This annual award will recognize an emerging Jewish leader (of any age) who is making a difference in advancing the values of a 21st century Judaism that is learned and passionate, authentic and pluralistic, joyful and accessible, egalitarian and traditional. Nominations for the Cardin Award are due by October 20 - get more information about the award criteria and nomination process.

New Consolation - A Resource for the High Holidays (and beyond)
In cooperation with the Jewish Theological Seminary, the Rabbinical Assembly, and the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, we are proud to present New Consolation, a short, engaging study program. This sourcebook is designed to benefit your entire kehilla - for individuals and groups of all sizes, from teens to senior citizens. We hope they spark discussion, learning and growth in your kehilla throughout 5775 and beyond.

USCJ Receives Inclusion Grant
Thanks to a generous grant from the Ruderman Family Foundation, United Synagogue will launch an initiative to transform Conservative congregations into truly inclusive communities for people with disabilities. Through the grant, United Synagogue will work with its affiliated kehillot, sacred communities, to develop comprehensive visions and action plans on inclusion. The goal is to create congregations where everything – from the entryway to the bima, from education programs to prayer services, from social activities to the very attitudes of congregants and leaders – allows people with disabilities and their families to participate fully and comfortably in congregational life. read more...

Annual Update
This year has been full of activity and accomplishment for United Synagogue and our partner kehillot. Read Rabbi Steven Wernick's year-end report and hear about this year's many activities.

    Kehilla Safety and Security
       
       


      Current world events - including the hacking of the websites of several USCJ-affiliated kehillot - are causing many organizations to re-evaluate their security protocols. From cyber-security to disaster preparedness, building access policies to security resources, USCJ has compiled a vast store of information to help your kehilla be the safest it can be.
