The Reconstructionist Synagogue of the North Shore (RSNS) was founded in the late 1950s by a group of families looking to form a committed and caring community based on the tenets of Reconstructionist Judaism and issues of social concern. The congregation has grown slowly and steadily through the years.

RSNS has a long history of participation in the leadership of the larger Reconstructionist movement.  Our members have supported the Rabbinic College since its formation and sat on the board of the Joint Reconstructionist Federation, the congregational organization.  In recent years, the College and JRF were combined into one overarching organization, now called Reconstructing Judaism (“RJ”), and RSNS members participated in that process as well.

We are extremely proud of the growing community of Reconstructionist rabbis that grew up in our congregation, including our current Rabbi, Jodie Siff
