Kaplan's Challenge to Us: A Vision of Social Justice

By Rebecca Alpert

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (RRC), Fall 1995

Despite Mordecai Kaplan's passionate interest in social justice, it has not become a significant factor in the Reconstructionist program. The author refers to two of Kaplan's works, "The Meaning of God in Modern Jewish Religion" and "The Religion of Ethical Nationhood", to articulate Kaplan's vision, and then suggests how that vision can best be translated into a pragmatic social justice agenda for the Reconstructionist community.
