Jewish Reconstructionist Federation

The Jewish Reconstructionist Federation (JRF), founded in 1955, was the synagogue arm of Reconstructionist Judaism, serving more than 100 congregations and havurot spread across North America. As of June 3, 2012, the JRF web site[1] was no longer being updated and was re-directing users to the new web site of the Jewish Reconstructionist Movement.[2]

In June 2012, the Reconstructionist movement underwent a restructuring that brought JRF into closer relationship with the Dan Ehrenkrantz, a 1989 graduate of the College.[3][4]

In January 2014, Rabbi Deborah Waxman, Ph.D., [5] became the RRC president.
