The Rabbinical Assembly was honored this month to be the convener of a webinar series co-hosted with the CCAR (the Reform Rabbinic organization), the RCA (the mainstream Orthodox Rabbinic organization), and the RRA (the Reconstructionist Rabbinic organization). Also joining us were the JCPA (Jewish Council for Public Affairs), JCRC and JFNA professionals. Much of this inclusive approach was possible thanks to David Bernstein, President and CEO of JCPA.
