The term "conservative" suggests upholding traditional Jewish values. Yet, since the late 80s, it has begun to shift away from Halachic Judaism and more towards Reform practices. This has troubled a lot of conservatively-observant Jews. Today, if you pray at a conservative synagogue, you'd be at the level that reform observed many years before. One commenter remarked that Conservative Judaism was once "liberal orthodox". Now it is seen more as a "traditionally-oriented reform", causing the more 'kosher' observers from the 80s to switch to Orthodox shuls, and abandoning their conservative synagoges, which they now feel have become Reform temples.
