About the Journal


The CCAR Journal: The Reform Jewish Quarterly seeks to explore ideas and issues of Judaism and Jewish life, primarily - but not exclusively - from a Reform Jewish perspective, in both prose and poetry.

This highly regarded journal contains articles of contemporary interest to all Jews by leading members of the rabbinic, scholarly, and lay communities. It was previously published under the name Journal of Reform Judaism.
