Convention

USCJ Convention is the largest gathering of Conservative Jews in North America, uniting hundreds of rabbis, executive directors, presidents, educators, young adults and others to tackle the biggest questions facing modern congregations.

The program celebrates a Judaism that’s truly dynamic and authentic. It includes with a powerful Shabbat experience featuring music, performance, and prayer, followed by three days of workshops, panels and educational sessions, covering topics vital to Conservative Jewish communities.

See highlights of the 2015 USCJ convention in Schaumburg, Illinois, and ideas and resources from the 2017 convention in Atlanta, GA, and 2019 convention (20/20 Judaism) in Boston, MA.

The Commons

The Commons is USCJ's digital community platform for lay and professional leadership of our member congregations to share ideas and resources, engage in conversation and create networks of purpose.

The Commons strengthens congregations by:

  • Fostering the creation and deepening of relationships among the leadership of our kehillot and USCJ
  • Facilitating the sharing of ideas and resources
  • Empowering members to develop their own affinity groups (clubs and cohorts), for their leadership teams, within our broader community
  • Directing synagogue leaders to forums of relevance on topics such as development and fundraising, digital engagement and disability inclusion
  • Further enabling our network to seek meaning together as we advance the role that an authentic and dynamic Judaism plays in the world
