The Reform Movement in North America

Har Sinai - Oheb Shalom Congregation is a proud member of the Union of Reform Judaism (URJ) the umbrella organization for North American Reform Judaism. More than 1 million Americans and Canadians are affiliated with the nearly 850 Reform congregations, making Reform Judaism the largest Jewish denomination in North America.

Since its founding in 19th-century Germany, the Reform Movement has embraced modernity, incorporating innovation into all facets of Jewish tradition, education, and life. Reform Judaism’s commitment to social justice for all — women, people with disabilities, and, indeed, people from all faiths and backgrounds who lack civil and human rights — is a key pillar of the movement, contributing to its popularity among North America’s Jews.
