A comment under a Washington Post article titled Ex-roommate of Facebook founder becomes rabbi in Israel reflects on Conservative Judaism.
In Orthodox Judaism the Rabbi's talk about the "Mesorah" a lot. I understand it to be transferring the traditions and laws of Moses from Mount Sinai to his people. Conservative Judaism offers a way for most Jews to say that they have a connection to their religion. But does it really give them anything or is it just a path to rationalize their connection to a belief they have given up a long time ago.
