 Families of Religions  Reform       Judaism
The vernacular language is used in most services. Judaism is adapted to contemporary conditions. The spirit of the law, rather than the letter of the law, is observed. Revelation is seen as coming through the human spirit and nature, as well as sacred text. Tradition home rituals are not as highly valued as in other traditions of Judaism.
