Read Reform Judaism magazine online
Reform Judaism magazine was the official voice of the Union for Reform Judaism, linking the institutions and affiliates of Reform Judaism with every Reform Jew. Covering developments within the Reform Movement while interpreting world events and Jewish tradition from a Reform perspective, it was received quarterly by nearly 300,000 member households (members of 860 Union congregations) as a benefit of their synagogue's Union affiliation.
The Fall 2014 edition was the final print version of the magazine which is why you are no longer receiving the print copy in the mail. However, you can read Reform Judaism magazine online by using and bookmarking this link: reformjudaismmag.org
