The Courage to be Conservative

By Aaron Brusso

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2006

The author acknowledges that the Conservative movement has the audacity to unapologetically study the human origins of Jewish texts and still expect that Godâ??s voice commands us through them. Nevertheless, he is proud of the movementâ??s courage in articulating competing truths without blushing before those who question its consistency. Finally, the author encourages the change that Conservative Judaism embraces and asserts that change is not only about sociological compromise; it is also about moral imperative.
