Progressive Judaism in Israel

By Sidney Schwarz

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), December 1976

The author discusses whether the values and traditions of a modern interpretation of Judaism can represent a legitimate, serious religious option for the Israeli people. Central to his evaluation is the present-day failure of the Reform and Conservative Movements in Israel to challenge the Israeli people's widely-held notion that Orthodoxy is "the real thing"' and he calls for a unification of the Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist Movements until religious pluralism becomes a reality.
