As head of a joint venture between the Diaspora Ministry and the Reform Movement, Rabbi Nir Barkin is connecting between Reform communities across the Jewish world

“I was a secular Israeli before. Going there was like, ‘Eureka! You can be Jewish without wearing a black hat,'” said Rabbi Nir Barkin about finding Reform Judaism during his stint as a Jewish Agency emissary in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, from 1999 to 2003.

“The Reform stream definitely fit in my wider perspective of being a human being. Being a Reform Jew is not just keeping kosher, etc,” he said. "Reform Judaism includes looking into racism, gender discrimination, and other topics of social activism close to his heart."

"During the ‘Jubilee,’ Reform and Israeli rabbinate will work together"
