Editor's Introduction to the Conservative Movement

By Susan Berrin

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2006

As Sh'ma's editor reflects on the changes over the last decades that have challenged the Orthodox, Reform and Reconstructionist movements, she asserts that the Conservative movement has an opportunity to rethink its ideological underpinnings, address a shifting demography and strengthen its presence. As the Conservative movement's Jewish Theological Seminary of America searches for a new chancellor, the editor introduces "letters" to the incoming chancellor about the movement's future and their visions for it.
