It's one thing to feel holiness when you enter a synagogue on Shabbat or a holy day. You go in expecting holiness. You expect that the rabbi's sermon will inspire you; that you will have a spiritual experience and connect with God.
Contemporary Judaism cannot spare any of its competing components. Each one, from Charedi to Reform, has a unique contribution to make.
I recently spent some time with the Helsinki Jewish community and learned something about Judaism I didn't know. First, I learned that the community of Judaism needs the Reform movement and cannot survive without it.
Second, I learned that the community of Judaism needs the Chabad movement and cannot build a future without its unique contribution.
