Responsible Religious Affiliation

By Jason Kalman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2007

The author argues that a lasting Judaism requires more content than the Reform movement can currently offer; the movement's commitment to its members' freedom to choose increases its responsibility to them, such as in enabling full Jewish literacy. Otherwise, he concludes, we will be unable to adequately face the challenges of the future, have little of worth to transmit to our children, and leave our membership unable to conscientiously choose to be Jews.
