Tablet recently reported that Shirley Gindler-Price, the former president of the Jewish Multiracial Network, released an updated compilation of temples and synagogues across the denominational spectrum considered to be welcoming of Jews of diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds, and have diverse membership in their pews.
The article stated that entries are based on referrals from Jewish multiracial families and Jews of color who have personally attended and felt comfortable in, and are now recommending to others. Additionally, the staff, the clergy, and the congregation of the synagogue may be evaluated anonymously before being added to the list.
Any list, of course, is subjective. The fact that certain synagogues were highlighted takes nothing away from the work being done by congregations not on the list.
We congratulate the dozen Reconstructionist synagogues included on the list.
