You Make A Difference

Make a gift now!

Your support makes it possible for us to

  • train rabbis who will lead progressive Judaism into the future, and
  • nurture Reconstructionist communities across North America


Here are just two examples of how your gift can make a difference:


The Kleinbaum Congregational Internship honors RRC graduate Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, ’90. It celebrates her
many significant contributions to social justice in the larger Jewish community; her outstanding leadership of Congregation Beit Simchat Torah in Manhattan; and her creation of, and support for, a program of practical rabbinical training that has become a model in the field. The internship generally rotates among Reconstructionist congregations so they can experience its value first-hand. It also serves as a wonderful incentive for congregations to establish and fund their own internships, increasing the overall number of intensive congregational experiences available to RRC students.


This year’s Kleinbaum Congregational Internship involves especially poignant relationships, because the recipient’s father, Rabbi Daniel Kamesar, z”l, was a classmate of both the mentoring rabbi and Rabbi Kleinbaum.


Meet this year’s intern and mentor as well as the funder!
