                                  Answer:
   
   Conservative Judaism
   
   The current guide to Jewish Law as understood by the Conservative
   movement was written by Rabbi Isaac Klein in the 1970s. His "Guide to
   Jewish Law" is a comprehensive guide book to the Conservative
   understanding of Jewish law based upon the previous law codes,
   including the Mishneh Torah, The Tur, The Shulkhan Arukh, and the
   Mishneh Berurah. The book also includes the decisions of the
   Conservative movement's Rabbinical Assembly and the Committee on
   Jewish Laws and Standards. The goal of Rabbi Klein's work was to
   reflect the collective understanding of Halakha by the Conservative
   movement.
   
   Reform: 
   
   Although not a formal guide to Jewish Law, the Central Conference of
   American Rabbis has published "Gates of Mitzvah" and "Gates of the
   Seasons" as guidance on mitzvot that are critical to the life of a
   Reform Jew. More information may be found in the [5]Reform Reading
   List.
