Website Launches!




The Union for Reform Judaism is excited to announce that the new website is out of “beta” mode and now officially launched! is the first website to provide a wealth of Jewish information through a Reform Jewish lens.


The URJ's intended audiences are affiliated Jews, unaffiliated/unengaged Jews, and those who are just curious. Their goal is to provide visitors with engaging content that represents the best that the Reform Movement has to offer. Visitors are encouraged to contribute pertinent content to enrich the site by showcasing the great work from Reform congregations.


Some easy ways to contribute to the new site include:

  • Suggest a prayer or blessing to add to the site’s searchable index of prayers and blessings
  • Suggest a blog post
  • Suggest a recipe
  • Suggest an event to add to the calendar

Visitors can comment on nearly any page of the site, and can interact with the site in many other ways as well, including:

  • Ask a question about Jewish cooking
  • Ask a rabbi a question about Judaism
  • Find a Judaism class near you
  • Find a congregation near you
  • Find an event near you
  • Send a free e-card
  • Find information and commentaries on any Torah portion
  • Find a Jewish baby name
  • Learn about Jewish holidays and life cycle events
