Question 18.7.3:
For Further Information: Are there any Reform Rabbis on the network who will answer questions?


Yes. First, the Union of American Hebrew Congregations operates a service called "Ask the Rabbi". It invites visitors to the UAHC website to pose questions about Judaism and Jewish life to be answered by a rabbi, or cantor or Jewish educator. It was initiated by the UAHC-CCAR Joint Commission on Synagogue Affiliation, and its realization was coordinated by Jonah Pesner, and is administered by Larry Raphael of the UAHC Department of Adult Jewish Growth.
