Social Action in Reform Judaism

By Balfour Brickner

Eugene Borowitz, April 2, 1993

The author provides a survey of Reform Judaism's national social action commitment from the 1950s to the present. He concludes that action as a main characteristic of the movement is waning in favor of a return to local worship and education development.
