As an Orthodox Jew, I am deeply disturbed at Rabbi Amar's views and proposed opposition. Stop being so afaid! Compeition among the movements will strengthen them all, improve outreach and force them to examine where they are falling short. Committed traditional practice offers so much greater beauty and depth than the liberal alternatives that in a free market of practice and ideas it is sure to attract many who are now alienated by its fearful monopoly of power.
