” “We normal religious people have to see from all this craziness,” said Rabbi Levin, “that He [God] is sending us a message to look at ‘them’—the liberal crazies—and redouble our spiritual efforts to do proactively, loudly, and clearly, just the opposite.””

The headline is deceptive. Conservative Judaism is actually one of the theologically liberal branches of Judaism, and has nothing to with politics.

Background: what is called “Conservative Judaism” in the USA is the result of a turn of the century (early 1900s) reaction against excesses of the even older Reform Judaism. It’s said that it was a spat over a plate of shrimp served at an official Jewish function, a food forbidden by the bible to Jews, that got the Conservative reaction going in the Reform movement, creating another movement that left the Reform auspices altogether. However, their biblical allegiance hit a pothole decades ago with the flirtation with the homosexual agenda, and it all went to pot. If there’s any surprise about this it’s that it took so long to happen. But I bet they’re still pretty good with the diet!

Anyhow, there’s no soul salvation in the law.

The whole idea of “conservatism” is to “conserve” something (presumably, something of value). That this document could be proposed is bad enough, but to have it unanimously approved (with one abstention - gee, what great moral courage...NOT), is an abomination. It speaks to the great lie that is Conservative Judaism - it isn’t conserving anything, it is just a slower train (than Reform) to assimilation.

I used to be a Conservative Jew, but haven’t been part of that lot for a LONG time. Good riddance, Erev Rav!

Historical footnote: Rabbi Yehuda Levin once ran for Mayor of New York City on the Conservative Party Line.

Rather than "Orthodox," I would describe him as "Hasidic" (ultra-Orthodox). On opposing gay "marriage," he's right on target.

...the ultra liberal Jewish crazies - who have long since abandoned any semblance of their great grand-fathers’ religion...

If ultra liberal Jewish crazies don't like or believe their religion, they should give it up and become Unitarian...or holy rollers...or something, but they shouldn't work to destroy something so beautiful.
