Union for Reform Judaism (formerly Union of American Hebrew Congregations)

New York, NY. (212) 650-4000.

With its mission of providing vision, leadership, and support to Reform Jewish congregations, the Union of American Hebrew Congregations promotes the growth of Reform Judaism; fosters programs for education, worship, and the pursuit of peace and justice; supports the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion; and advocates for Israel, Jewish people wherever they live, and the development of Liberal Judaism under the auspices of the World Union for Progressive Judaism. Featured on its extensive web site are sections for learning (both adult and children/youth), resources (youth, congregational, and personal), publications (including 'Reform Judaism' magazine), directories (of allied organizations, camps, and congregations), and feedback. In addition, the web site provides links to discussion groups, news sources, and “Torahnet” (a guide to Torah study via the internet). Persons interested in the growth and vibrancy of Reform Judaism and Reform Jewish congregations will find this organization and its web site valuable.
