Her work includes: RITUALWELL (ritualwell.org), a platform to cultivate and share innovative Jewish ritual; EVOLVE, an online forum for groundbreaking Jewish conversations; and RECONSTRUCTIONIST LEARNING NETWORKS (reconstructingjudaism.org/networks), to connect people across perspectives and geography in service of building a more just and joyous world.

As a faculty member of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, Cyd teaches social entrepreneurship. She also oversees grants for students and recent graduates launching new and meaningful ways of engagement. On the Edge, she blogs stories of social entrepreneurs. The guiding question for the blog: What should the rest of us know? (reconstructingjudaism.org/news/edgeblog)
