My latest piece, Upside Down Judaism: Why Are Progressives Studying Talmud?, was just posted over on Religion Dispatches.

It used to be commonly held that Orthodox Jews were more interested in ritual observances—the obligations between people and God—while Reform Jews were interested in charity and justice, or the obligations among people. (No one really knew where the Conservative movement stood…)
The last decade has changed all this.

Enjoy.
