Rabbinic Role in Reconstructionist Congregations

By Sidney Schwarz

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (RRC), Spring 1991

Through what he calls the "public" and "private" responsibilities of a congregational rabbi, Schwarz describes how Reconstructionist rabbis carve out their role at a congregation, how they make decisions and how they involve the laity to create a dynamic synagogue-community. He suggests that the congregation and board be maximally supportive of rabbinic creativity.
