Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a ground breaking collection of essays that takes a hard look at the Reform Movement today. Opening essays look at the problem of building a religous community, the competition in the "spiritual marketplace," and why people join or do not join a Reform synagogue. Other contributors look at a host of controversial issues including Patrilineal Descent, Outreach, Intermarriage, gender issues, gay and lesbian participation, and others.

Synopsis:

Contemporary Debates in American Reform Judaism discusses the recent issues and arguments surrounding the Reform movement. The contributors to this volume examine several important issues including the role of Reform in relation to Conservative and Orthodox movements; the role of women and feminism in Reform, particularly women rabbis; the upcoming vote on the new platform scheduled for this year; and interpretations of the latest census data for Reform Jews.
