Sephardim in the Masorti Movement in Israel

By Yonatan Elazar

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Spring 2007

The author discusses the inclusion of the first Sephardic congregation into the Masorti Movement in Israel. He explains that a deep commitment to Jewish traditions and to halakhah (Jewish law), along with a liberal outlook that embraces the requisites of modernity and contemporary Israeli life, should herald a new vitality for both the Masorti movement and the Masortiyim in Israel.
