Hi Alan,

Interesting post. Two thoughts: what about Reconstructionist Jewish -- have you heard of it? My temple in Olympia (where I am now on the board for this year) is Reconstructionist, and it hits a good balance, with a strong emphasis on social justice issues.

The other is I am reading a book you might find of interest: People Love Dead Jews, by Dara Horn.

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.

Hi Susan, I was a member of a Reconstructionist congregation in South Bend, as long as it lasted. Reconstructionism would come under the “other” category in the data I had, holding steady at 5-6 perecent (including all "others) of U.S. Jews.
