From Jeffrey E. Schwarz

By Jeffrey E. Schwarz

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2006

As the Conservative movementâ??s Jewish Theological Seminary of America searches for a new chancellor, the author writes a letter asking what the Conservative movement stands for and whether it needs to exist. He urges change, arguing that avoiding change when change is needed and dodging crucial decisions while waiting for a consensus to develop can be riskier than asserting the principled stance of a true leader.
