Who Needs Theology?

By Neil Gillman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2005

Gillman argues that theology is not only an academic discipline, but is also indispensable to Jewish religious identity as well as a means for clarifying Jewish movements' ideologies. According to Gillman, Conservative Judaism is a selectively halakhic movement, whose authority is grounded not in God, but in our own communities.
