Congregational Tools

Congregations are at the forefront of the Reform Movement's social action work, from direct service to local advocacy. At this portal, you can find tools, programming ideas, resources, and funds for multiple aspects of social action work geared towards congregations and local communities.

Congregational Tools

Looking for a way to integrate social justice themes into your worship services or congregational mission? Our rabbinic resources include sermon starters and sample prayers and speeches on a variety of social justice topics. 

These tools — including text studies, activities, and more — will help you incorporate social justice themes into your holiday celebrations, from Tu BiSh'vat to Hanukkah.

We are commanded to repair the world around us, and to help those in need. What does your congregation do? What would your congregation like to do?

The RAC partners with Nothing But Nets and the United Nations Foundation to raise awareness and funds in the fight against malaria. 

These publications are useful tools for congregational lay leaders, clergy, educators, and other staff managing social action programming and socially responsible practices. 

The Irving J. Fain Awards, awarded every other year, honor exemplary social action projects in URJ congregations.
