Incomprehensible. Of course it is a religious divide. The Israeli orthodox establishment as well as the haredi growing power, both in Israel and the USA and EU, religiously reject the legitimacy of the other movements in Judaism. It is not psychological at all. No amount of "bridging" or group sessions will change that. You may get a Riskin who knows how to sweet talk donations from Reform and Conservative Jews but he will never openly support their legitimacy in his rabbinical circles. To do so would be suicide. A leading haredi lawyer explained Cherlow's momentary deviancy by stating that his organization (Tzohar) is really no better than the "Reformim"! it should be noted that Tzohar is a leading organization of moderate orthodox religious Zionism. With the exception of David Hartman, thee is not one rabbi who purports to be orthodox in Israel who would speak professionally with a reform rabbi. So Burg is just getting his name out there with a trite article with no substance. hey bu now he is again a "player".
