The Roots of Reform Judaism Booklet Project is designed to address the unmet needs of Reform and progressive Jews around the world - especially those with access to few, if any, Reform Jewish resources. All of our booklets are written primarily in English, with transliterations accompanying all of the Hebrew passages, making it possible for anyone to confidently lead any of the booklet services or engage with the material for self-reflection.
