In the forthcoming Winter issue of the Jewish Review of Books, a colleague and friend of many years, Rabbi Daniel Gordis, has written an article titled “Requiem for a Movement,” referring to the Conservative movement in the aftermath of the recently released Pew Report.  As one might imagine, the article has generated a great deal of “discussion” among my colleagues in the Conservative rabbinate.  I can only imagine that the lay leadership of our movement is similarly engaged.

Rabbi Gerald Skolnik is spiritual leader of the Forest Hills Jewish Center.
