I don't believe that there should be movements within Judaism. I have not found one single scripture that would justify there existing any movements. I am a member of a Temple, however I am not part of any movement. I'm just attending the Temple that is closest to my home and that happens to be the Reform Temple. To accept a movement is like setting a fence around yourself. That is as far as you allow yourself to travel. I am free to explore and live my life within Judaism as I feel the conviction to do so. The only thing that changes between people is the level of observance. We study all the same laws as everyone else, and there are people like myself that fill the conviction to follow the law. I am a Sephardic jew that just happens to attend a Reform Temple. If the Reform Temple was not there I wouldn't have a Temple to go to. There are non-observant jews in the Reform movement, as there are the same in every other movement as well. Maybe there are more because they feel more comfortable within Reform, but all of Judaism is available to them. No one will look down upon them for following the law if they decide to. I attend both study groups, the Reform and Chabad. I learn a lot from both groups. I don't belong to a movement, I belong to a people. Movements should not exist. We need to close the gap and just all be a people again.
