Reform vs Conservative

Reform Judaism

Reform Judaism centers around Judaism coexisting effectively with those who live in modern times in all cultures, and has enabled the Jewish people to introduce innovation and more liberal philosophies into the religion while preserving tradition.

Choosing Reform Judaism means you embrace diversity and believe that we are all partners in improving the world. Reform Judaism also accepts the core values of Judaism – God, Torah and Israel – even as it acknowledges the diversity of Jewish beliefs and practices. With Reform – Jews accept the Torah as the foundation of Jewish life and see the Torah as a living document that enables us to confront the challenges of our everyday lives.

Reform Jews are committed to the principle of inclusion and reaching out to Jews-by-choice and interfaith families. They consider children to be Jewish if they are the child of a Jewish father or mother.

Reform Jews are committed to the absolute equality of women and all people in all areas of Jewish life. It was also the first movement to ordain women rabbis, invest women cantors, elect women presidents of synagogues, and welcome the full participation of gays and lesbians in synagogue life.

Reform Judaism gives its members autonomy to practice Jewish rituals and holidays as they best fit their place in their community and society.

Conservative Judaism

The terms conservative means that Jews should attempt to conserve Jewish tradition. Conservative Judaism teaches that the Torah and Talmud are of divine origin, and thus mandate following halakhah (Jewish law).

The Conservative movement also recognizes the human element in society and accepts modern scholarship that shows Jewish writings were completed under the influence of other cultures that can help enrich the Jewish community.

Therefore, Conservative Judaism believes in applying modern interpretation to the Torah and Talmud as long as the belief remains centered around the core values of Judaism. These seven core values are:

– The importance of Israel
– Hebrew: as the language of Jewish expression
– Devotion to the ideals of the Jewish community
– The Defining Role of Torah including the study of Torah
– Governance of Jewish Life by Halakha (Jewish law)
– And Belief in God

This doesn’t mean that Conservative Judaism demands all Jews settle in Israel or speak Hebrew. But maintaining the sense of Jewish Community and adhering to its laws as described in the Torah and Talmud is first and foremost the way to live a Jewish life.

Rabbi Marc was professional, patient, and inspiring. Last week, he helped me apply for my birthright trip to Israel. I am 24 years old and proud to be Jewish. I am very lucky to get this experience. Thank you so much. You have changed my life forever!
John Antonio
I have wanted to convert to Judaism for as long as I can remember. But I had no idea I could convert to Judaism online. At 30 years old, I feel like I am just starting my life. I can’t believe I can finally say that I am a member of the Jewish community. Thank you Rabbi Marc! You are truly a Rabbi to the stars!
Tiffany Santero
I started the online conversion course in 2017. Like a Rabbi in your pocket, I can rely on him every day. Rabbi Marc is on speed dial in my phone, and he picks up every time I call. He responds to every email within the hour. Thanks Rabbi Marc, I know we will continue to chat.
