Recharging Reform Judaism

Reclaiming Spiritual Direction for a Vibrant Future

May 31–June 1, 2023

Hosted at Stephen Wise Free Synagogue in New York City

See Our Conference Planning Committee


In this historic moment of unprecedented change, the future of North American Reform Judaism hangs in the balance. Built upon the pillars of God, Torah and Israel, that foundation today faces growing challenges and crises.

But with crisis comes opportunity. Steadfast in our dedication to the principles of liberal Judaism, we must seize this historic moment: to reassert the balance between Jewish particularity and universal ethics; to champion Jewish peoplehood and invigorate Zionism; to enrich spirituality, theology, and Jewish observance; to recommit resources for Jewish education and youth programming; and to cultivate present and future generations that are Jewishly knowledgeable, committed and creative.

The Re-CHARGING Reform Judaism Conference will convene thought leaders, Jewish scholars, philanthropists, and committed lay leaders from throughout the U.S. and Canada for an extraordinary opportunity to assess this crossroads moment and offer a call for a bright future.

Join us to explore our challenges and recharge our Jewish community and reshape the Reform Jewish agenda. The challenges are many; the opportunities profound.

Registration will open in November 2022, when a full conference schedule with speakers will be published.
