The Reform synagogue union may get a new name. The Union of American Hebrew Congregations, which represents more than 900 North American Reform synagogues, may become the Union for Reform Judaism. The new name will go before the group’s 67th biennial convention in Minneapolis on Nov. 5-9 for a vote after the recommendation last year by its board of trustees.
