Congregations Worldwide

Over 1,200 congregations around the world – both large and small, some established and others just starting – currently affiliate with Reform, Progressive, Liberal or Reconstructionist Judaism. From the former Soviet Union, Germany and Israel to Australia, Latin America and beyond, Jews are experiencing an awakening, or a rebirth, of congregational activity on new and unparalleled levels.

With an estimated 1.8 million members in 45 countries, the liberal streams of Judaism represent a global community with diverse practices but a similar goal: a contemporary, creative expression of Jewish spiritual and cultural identity that is rooted in our rich Jewish traditions.

The affiliated congregations of the World Union are located in seven regions, whose members regularly communicate, meet and enrich each others’ experience of Jewish life.
