Biennial

Join with thousands of Jews from across North America and around the world to learn, pray, share ideas, dance and sing, hear from inspiring speakers and the leaders of our Movement; reunite with old friends, create new connections, and make decisions about the policies of the Reform Movement.

URJ Biennial 2019 is over, but you can still view videos of the experience — 5,000 Jews from across North America and around the world gathered to learn, pray, share ideas, dance and sing, heard from inspiring speakers and the leaders of our Movement; reunited with old friends, created new connections, and made decisions about the policies of the Reform Movement.

Watch the videos of the 2019 URJ Biennial plenary sessions, services and Shabbat song sessions at urjbiennial.org

Make sure to watch the Friday morning plenary session where the URJ and the RAC launched our 2020 Civic Engagement Campaign and vote on social justice resolutions, including one on reparations for U.S. slavery and ongoing racism.

And get ready for the next biennial, to be held in Washington, D.C. in 2021! Stay tuned ….

Make plans to  join us at the next URJ Biennial, December 8-11, 2021 in Washington D.C. (National Harbor)!
