Students build community within and beyond RRC’s walls. Our campus pulses with unique energy that radiates to the surrounding region. Students involve themselves in social justice initiatives and actions, Jewish and other community organizations, and then return to campus, share their experiences, and engage each other in conversation and action.
At every turn, you will be encouraged to shape your own education. Among the opportunities within RRC to enrich your student experience are the Reconstructionist Student Association, Community Limmud (learning), prayer and shabbatonim (Shabbat retreats). (More on those in a moment.)
We’re also a short car or train ride from Center City Philadelphia, the fifth-largest city in the United States, with its extraordinary arts scene, fabulous culinary opportunities and the largest urban park system in the country. In recent years, Philadelphians — an increasingly diverse and engaged population — have positioned themselves at the forefront of movements to improve gender equality, end racial and ethnic discrimination, and promote human rights. In other words, it’s not hard to find ways to make a difference.
