Soulful Self-Reflection

By Sharon Brous

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2006

The author argues that the future of Conservative Judaism will depend on its members' ability to embody an ethic of passionate, committed involvement in the world that flows from, and likewise informs, a humble and courageous encounter with the Jewish tradition. She concludes that if the movement is true to its deepest aspirations - allowing the creative tension between tradition and modernity to fuel our religious existence - then it will inspire a new generation to become both actively committed Jews and agents of change on the world stage.
