A Reconstructionist Approach to the Book of Esther,
taught by Rabbi Stiefel
Mordecai Kaplan, founder of Reconstructionist Judaism, argued that evolving Jewish religious civilizations co-existed beside non-Jewish civilizations historically. The Story of Esther serves as a lesson of living in multiple civilizations. Our holiday of Purim, through the use of costumes and disguises, encourages us to pass as someone we are not in real life. Come explore the many ways identities are hidden and revealed in the Scroll of Esther.

About Us

Mayim Rabim Congregation, founded in 1992, is affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist movement. We are an urban Jewish community that comprises people of diverse ages, abilities, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds, and financial resources. We strive to create and sustain spaces that enhance the practice of Judaism in the contemporary world; to that end, we are a house of prayer, of study, and tikkun olam (the repair of the world). As Reconstructionists, we view Judaism as an evolving religious civilization and claim a shared heritage with all Jews.

We are an inclusive, heymish congregation and we welcome visitors!
