Envisioned Communities: A Sh'ma Roundtable

By Sharon Brous, Rachel Nussbaum, Darren Levine, Lizzi Heydemann, Zushe Greenberg

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, October 2012

We asked several rabbis, representing the spectrum of religious belief and practice, who have founded successful communities - most of which do not consider themselves "synagogues" - to talk about what distinguishes these groups. We wondered if indie minyanim and communities are having an impact on the expectations of what a more mainstream synagogue is supposed to be and do. And we wondered whether the impact goes both ways: Are these communities becoming part of the synagogue scene without the name?
