From Pulpit to Community Work

By Sidney Schwarz

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Summer 1987

The author compares three principles -- which he believes transcend theory and could be applied in almost every practical setting in which rabbis find themselves -- and their applicability to his role as a pulpit rabbi and also as a member of the Jewish Community Council. The three principles include: Judaism as a civilization; democratic decision-making; and "organic community," a cross-denominational community network that is involved in every aspect of Jewish life.
