Conservative liberalism

If I had any doubts about the decline of Conservative Judaism, they have been sadly confirmed by Rabbi Steven Wernick’s opening remarks in “The

Conversation of the Century.” He calls for us to unite on “…the scourge of gun violence in the U.S., or social justice matters, or the environment, or access and acceptance for people with disabilities and special needs…” This is not a Jewish agenda; it’s a Liberal agenda. The Conservative movement is desperately casting about for a reason to exist and rather than focus on the Jewish trinity of God, Torah, and Israel, it has adopted the liberal fad-of-the-moment. And they wonder why they are dying?
