Madrikh Larabbanim: A Review of "The Rabbi's Manual of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association"
The author reviews the new Rabbi's manual released by the Reconstructionist movement largely positively, especially lauding it for its commitment to feminism and for the decision to release it as a loose-leaf binder rather than a bound book, as well as for much but not all of its liturgical development. Among his critiques, he identifies a tendency to sacrifice intellectual honesty for the sake of ideological interests, like the commitment to gender equality and to offering traditional ritual.
