Our Common Vision; Our Common Purpose

By Michael Greenbaum

Rabbinical Assembly of America (RA), March 19, 2006

In this speech to the Rabbinical Assembly Convention, the author reflects on the Conservative Movement's theoretical and much-bemoaned lack of a common purpose. Conservative Judaism does have a common purpose, the author argues, and that is to be a middle path between two extremes. The problem is not a lack of purpose, but a lack of confidence in and passion for the Conservative Movement. The moment that we become passionate about who we are and what we stand for; the moment that we model it with pride; teach it with exuberance; will be the moment of our resurgence as a movement.
