The Union for Reform Judaism provides vision and voice to build strong communities that, together, transform the way people connect to Judaism and change the world. Our legacy, reach, leadership, and vision ensure we can unite thousands of years of tradition with modern experience to strengthen Judaism today and for generations to come.

Our Judaism is for everyone. It is egalitarian, intellectually rigorous, joyful, spiritual, pluralistic, and constantly evolving. It is soul-elevating spiritual practice, life-altering Torah study, courageous practice of tikkun olam, loving care for our community, especially the most vulnerable — that is what we are.
— Rabbi Rick Jacobs, URJ President

       Hatzilu Rescue Organization  http://www.hatzilurescue.org/

The Hatzilu Rescue Organization, established in 1976, is made up solely of volunteers. Hatzilu was created as a response to Jewish groups, including synagogue Men’s Clubs, Sisterhoods and Youth Groups, who became aware of growing numbers of Jews in need. These groups wanted to help maintain the dignity of those members of the Jewish community who had fallen on hard times as a result of health issues, loss of employment or a change in personal situations.
