Reconstructionists at Center City's Leyv Ha-Ir have a strong commitment to tradition and to their search for contemporary meaning. They define Judaism as an ever-evolving product of history that must be continuously re-examined and restated for each age. When a particular Jewish value or custom becomes meaningless, Reconstructionist rabbis work with committed lay members to formulate guidelines for future Jewish practices. In this way, each generation of Jews can subtly reshape the faith and traditions of the Jewish people so that Judaism becomes a dynamic, ever-changing vision for the future.
