The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism

The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (The RAC) is the Washington office of the Union for Reform Judaism, the organization that supports more than 900 congregations across North America and represents an estimated 1.5 million Jews.  The RAC is the hub of Jewish social justice and legislative activity. This non-partisan organization pursues public policies that reflect the Jewish values of social justice and lobbies in the U.S. Congress on behalf of U.S. Reform Jews.  Read more about the ways The RAC pursues justice.

The RAC’s work is mandated by the Union for Reform Judaism and the Central Conference of American Rabbis and guided by the policy decisions of the Commission on Social Action of Reform Judaism. Representatives from Union affiliated groups, such as the Central Conference of American Rabbis and the Women of Reform Judaism, make up the CSA. This volunteer group governs the RAC’s policy positions, drafts position statements that are adopted at the North American Biennials.  Day-to-day monitoring of events and discourse in D.C. and around the country also informs its mission and its work.

Deborah Kadin, a member of the Commission on Social Action and an OPT member, keeps the congregation apprised on the RAC’s work.
