Movements of Judaism
Level: Basic The different sects or denominations of Judaism are generally referred to as movements. The differences between Jewish movements are not nearly as great as the differences between Christian denominations. The differences between Orthodoxy and Reform Judaism are not much greater than the differences between the liberal and fundamentalist wings of the Baptist denomination of Christianity. In general, when I speak of "movements" in this site, I am referring to movements in the United States in the 20th century.
Movements in Ancient Times
Perhaps the oldest records we have of a formal difference of opinion among Jews dates back to the time of the Maccabean revolt, which is the basis for the story of Chanukkah . At that time, the land of Israel was under the relatively benevolent control of Greece, and was deeply influenced by Greek culture. Hellenizing Jews were opposed by a religious traditionalist group known as the Chasideans (no direct relation to the modern movement known as Chasidism). As the Selucid Greeks began to oppress the Jews, war broke out and the Jewish people united in their opposition to the Greeks.

Many people today view reconstructionist judaism primarily in institutionalterms as an organization, a movement, a rabbinical school, a synagogue.
"LOYALTY TO DEMOCRACY MUST BE PART OF OUR MODERN JUDAISM" by Rabbi Emanuel S. Goldsmith Those of us who believe that Judaism must continue to evolve are also convinced that what Judaism needs most of all today is to appropriate the democratic spirit as its own. We need to make notions of democracy and pluralism part of our living Jewish heritage. "As a consequence of historical experience," writes Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, "man's intelligence has come to regard democracy as the most authentic method of human creative survival, since both the maturity of the individual and international peace call for a conception of human life in which the individual and society have to be conceived as means to and ends for each other. Consequently, the next stage in Judaism has to incorporate democracy into its set of values." Here are a few of my favorite expressions of the democratic spirit: Abraham Lincoln : "As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy."

Reconstructionist. reconstructionist judaism is a fast growing branch, althoughit's the smallest (only about 3% of all Jews are Reconstructionist).
SYW convert to Mormonism?
SYW learn the basics of Greek mythology?

SYW learn the basics of yoga?

Once you have firmly decided to become Jewish, the next step is to find a rabbi who will be your sponsor for conversion. This rabbi will take you through all the necessary steps, and will proclaim you ready for conversion only when he thinks that you're ready. So it's important to pick a rabbi you like and think you can get along with. When picking a rabbi, you have to consider many things, including location, whether you have to pay (and how much you have to pay) to be a member of the temple, and the temple's level of religiosity. There are four basic levels of religiousness:
  • Orthodox
  • Conservative
  • Reform
  • Reconstructionist Orthodox This is the most traditional branch of Judaism. Orthodox Jews will go to temple every Saturday, and they tend to have a literal interpretation of the Bible. Just think of this as the most religious of the branches. Converting to Orthodox Judaism will take up A LOT of time, because you have to read and learn a lot of Jewish laws, and you will probably have to learn how to read Hebrew. Jewish men who wear yarmulkes (or skullcaps, or a keepot, or whatever you like to call 'em) are probably Orthodox. Non-Jewish men who wear yarmulkes are probably trying to hide their baldness.

    Jewish Timeline: The Unbroken Evolving Chain: A Tradition of Change. Just how old is Judaism as we practice it? When was the first Bat Mitzvah? Which of today’s major branches of Judaism began earliest? Who is credited with changing the way Judaism regards miracles? When did Hasidism begin? When did polygamy end? How did Orthodoxy come to have power in Israel? The answers may astound you.
    Judaism is thousands of years old, yet its concepts and practices change in response to the needs and understandings of Jews. So, while we trace our history back, it is a history of evolution. Many of the practices, which we associate with being fundamental to Judaism, may only be a few generations old. The nature of marriage, the role of women, the role of God and the concept of miracle, the practices of Bar and Bat Mitzvah, and so on, have all gone through transformations.
    The claim of any branch of Judaism to be the one original unchanged construct is not credible. The claim that Jewish descent is through the mother, for example, is belied by the Torah, in which descent is through the father. (Moses and King Solomon both married non-Jews.) Many Jews, as well as the Reform and Humanistic movements, accept that a Jew is a child of a Jewish parent, or a person who chooses to become Jewish.

    Movements Before the 20th Century
    All Jewish movements that exist today are derived from one movement, identified in the Christian scriptures as the Pharisees.  At the dawn of Christianity, there were several different competing schools of thought:  the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the Essenes, and the Zealots.  The Pharisaic school of thought is the only one that survived the destruction of the Temple .  The Pharisees believed that God gave the Jews both a written Torah and an oral Torah , both of which were equally binding and both of which were open to reinterpretation by the rabbis , people with sufficient education to make such decisions.  The Pharisees were devoted to study of the

    Judaism Today
    Judaism as it is found in the United States today is divided into four modern religious movements represented by synagogue membership. A small percentage of Jews identify with more or less extremist, rightwing, cult-like movements (such as Hasidism) which had their origins in eighteenth century Europe. A far larger percentage of Jews (nearing one-half, at any given time) identify themselves as Jewish though they belong to no movement—some of these do join synagogues from time to time, but others prefer to remain “secular” for ideological reasons. Mixed among both secular and synagogue-based Jews, there are others who center their Jewish identity on Zionism.
    In the years just after World War II, Zionism (the desire to rebuild a Jewish national presence in the Promised Land) became a popular Jewish cause. Many Jews who had loose ties or no ties at all with religion became involved with the establishment of the State of Israel. Even today, many years after the successful founding of the State of Israel, there are Jews whose only real tie to Judaism is their belief in Zionism and their support for the State of Israel. They are joined by many Jews who are members of synagogues and support a modern Jewish religious movement, but who also find their prime identity as Jews in the Zionist cause. Broadly speaking, Zionists are proud that a small and struggling state made up mainly of Jews has created a modern democracy out of what were barren mountainsides, near deserts, and mosquito-breeding marshes. Zionists also point with pride at the ability of the Israelis to defend their land against the claims and armies of neighboring Arab nations.

AMERICAN JUDAISM Essay Notes Bibliography Webliography Throughout history Jewish people have combined ordinary and extraordinary religion in much the same way Native Americans have blended community life; religious practice; and relationships with the natural, social and political world. This blending of the elements of extraordinary and ordinary religion has resulted in the preservation of a unique Jewish identity that, although subject to the influence of various cultures surrounding groups of Jews, has set the them apart in many countries and cultures. The American Jewish experience is unique because the predominately Protestant American culture, religious freedom and separation of church and state have reshaped this religious group. The synagogue is a unifying force within American Jewish communities, replacing the social structure of a separate community characteristic of European Judaism. Jewish identity in America delineates identification with a cultural perspective or heritage, rather than religious practice. Three religions dominate American society. These three faiths are Protestantism, Catholicism, and Judaism.

    For Reconstructionists, Judaism is more than Jewish religion; Judaism is the entire cultural legacy of the Jewish people. Religion is central; Jewish spiritual insights and religious teachings give meaning and purpose to our lives. Yet our creativity as expressed through art, music and drama, languages and literature, and our relationship with the land of Israel itself are also integral parts of Jewish culture. Each of these aspects provides a gateway into the Jewish experience that can enrich and inspire us.

    Marc Lee Raphael The book begins with a chapter on beliefs, festivals, and life-cycle events, both traditional and non-traditional, and an explanation of the enormous variation in practice. Raphael then covers Jewish history in America, from the arrival of the first Jews about 350 years ago to the present, highlighting the emergence of the four branches: Orthodox, Conservative, Reconstructionist, and Reform. After documenting the enormous variation among the branches, the book turns to contentious issues, notably spirituality, conversion, homosexuality, Jewish education, synagogue architecture, and the relationship to Israel. A chapter focuses on the return to tradition in every branch of Judaism, and, finally the book examines prospects for the future. Contents
