Letter Between the Generations

By David Nelson, Harry Nelson

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2006

A father and son, David and Harry Nelson, correspond via letters about why son Harry left his native Conservative Judaism for Orthodox Judaism. David, HarryĆ¢??s father, worries about the degree of pluralism and the role of HarryĆ¢??s daughters in Orthodoxy. He concedes, however, that Harry has taken the best that Conservative Judaism has offered him and expresses his hope that Harry creates a space in his community with room for his personal ideals.
