Reconstructionist is part of progressive
- [WUPJ] - reconstructionist congregations are members of the world union and/or a regional body
- In USA: http://wupj.org/Congregations/NorthAmerica.asp - Jewish Reconstructionist Federation - the US reconstructionist congregational association is a member of the World Union for Progressive Judaism.
- In Israel: reconstructionist congregations are members of the [Israeli Movement for Progressive Judaism. Example: Mevakshei Derech - Israeli congregation started by Mordechai Kaplan (and the father of some friends of mine). Is a member of IMPJ, but still uses reconstructionist Torah blessing (omits the bit about being a chosen people).

Progressive Judaism (United Kingdom)
As per consensus reached Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Progressive Judaism#Consolidating coverage of UK progressive Judaism] I have created an article to discuss commonalities specific to the various UK progressive movement and added it to the template. Egfrank 06:20, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Beliefs and practices
The link has been changed to point to the Progressive Judaism article. The previous value of the link points to an article that is still under development, has serious problems with synthesis, errors of fact, and non-sequitors. Though I am sure the editor working on the article will eventually fix these problems, the article is not yet mature enough to function as a main article for Progressive Judaism beliefs and practices. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Egfrank Egfrank 03:00, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
