    Susan, I need to tell you, I've spent the past 21 years of my life as a member of a Reform congregation. The reality is the Reform movement's beliefs follow on the premise of choice through knowledge. I know plenty of Reform Jews who walk down the streets of their towns wearing a yarmulkah, tzit tzit, ect. And, I know Reform Jews who eat pork and shellfish but keep the sabbath. The reality is, is that times change, and through different times come different means. The torah tells us that we are supposed to make sacrifices at certain times of the year, but do any Jews still perform such tasks as they are outlined in the holy books? Reform Judaism is not the problem, its the people who cannot accept those who choose to practice their religion differently, those who chose their ways and means based on their knowledge and study of torah as opposed to those who sit by and accept the word of another as pure truth!
