Central Conference of American Rabbis
- New York
The Central Conference of American Rabbis is Reform Judaism’s rabbinic leadership organization. The CCAR strengthens the Jewish community by providing religious, spiritual, ethical, and intellectual leadership. CCAR and its members lead the Reform Movement on important spiritual, social, cultural and human rights issues, as it has done since 1889. CCAR also is the center for lifelong rabbinic learning, professional development, and personal support for the 2,100 rabbis who serve more than 1.5 million Reform Jews throughout North America, Israel and the world. Since its founding, the CCAR also has served as the primary publisher of the Reform Movement through CCAR Press and its imprint Reform Judaism Publishing.
