Temple Sinai, a Reform Congregation in Brookline MA — Rabbi Benjamin Rudavsky

www.sinaibrookline.org [cached]

Rabbi Benjamin Z. Rudavsky Rabbi Benjamin Z. Rudavsky served as Temple Sinai's second Rabbi, from July 1964 to January 1974. He arrived after serving as an Assistant Rabbi in Cleveland. The years Rabbi Rudavsky served were a time of great change and upheaval for the United States, Israel, world Judaism, the Reform movement, and indeed for Temple Sinai.

Rabbi Rudavsky brought a high level of political consciousness to his pulpit, sermonizing frequently on high-intensity American political issues, such as the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War, and Watergate. He served as Rabbi during the Six-Day War (1967) and Yom Kippur War (1973) fought by Israeli against its Arab neighbors. He spoke powerfully about Israel 's right to exist in peace and security, as well as that nation's responsibility as a democracy to provide civil rights for all its citizens and reasonable protections for all those who lived in the disputed territories of the West Bank and Gaza. The early 1970s also saw the beginning of the American Jewish community's major effort on behalf of Soviet Jews, another cause Rabbi Rudavsky championed.
Whereas Rabbi Cohon was a rationalist and a scholar in the European mold, Rabbi Rudavsky spoke to emotion and was quintessentially American. He worked to infuse feeling into synagogue rituals, championed new melodies, and allowed experimentation in Reform practice, especially on the part of the Confirmation class and the youth group during the Friday evening services each group led.
