and external, for this change. The Reform and Orthodox movements were revitalized as each tapped into a broader current in the popular culture.
Orthodoxy paralleled the growth of evangelical Christianity—unapologetic, unreformed, and unimpeded by liberal insecurities. Reform paralleled the secular American embrace of radical autonomy---the individual got to choose what was meaningful and, ultimately, what was good. Conservative Judaism seemed "pareve"—conservative with a small c, worried about change, but also too timid to assert its own core values to an increasingly assimilated community. In place of ideology we offered peoplehood—the opportunity to tap into the sounds and experiences that awakened nostalgia, rather than those that ignited passion. We have suffered for our stodginess.
But this is beginning to change. Across the country, and even the world, our mix of modernity and tradition retains a resilient hold. You can see that mix infiltrating both the Reform and the Orthodox movements. The former are upgrading their ritual offerings; the latter are experimenting with more inclusive practices for women. Within our own congregations, there is a sense of revitalization as new daavening styles are paired with exciting programs such as our own SYNergy.
On the national level, Chancellor-elect Arnie Eisen of JTS is energizing audiences of American Jews to think more deeply and boldly about what we have to offer the nation and the world. Adat Shalom is an important player in this dynamic. Innovative programming paired with talented lay and professional leadership is providing a vital center for our Jewish community. The recent decision of the Law Committee to include gay and lesbian Jews in our movement with full dignity demonstrates our vibrant mixture of tradition and change. Obviously there are some on the left and some on the right who are unhappy with this decision. However, the center of our movement will emerge stronger and more capable of reclaiming a leading role in American religion.
With confidence, intelligence and faith, we will find ways to strengthen the Torah and inspire a new generation. We will bring dignity to all people, and give glory to God. COMMUNITY FORUM AT ADAT SHALOM
ON LAW COMMITTEE DECISION
Rabbi Daniel Nevins will speak to the community at 7:30
p.m. on Thursday, January 18 at Adat Shalom.
In a community forum sponsored by the Rabbinical
Assembly of Michigan, Rabbi Nevins will discuss Homosexuality
and Jewish Law. As a member of the Rabbinical Assembly's
Committee on Jewish Law and Standards, he will describe the
process and substance of the most recent Law Committee vote on
the issue of homosexuality. There is no charge.
