                                  Answer:
   
   Reform Judaism maintains the principle of individual freedom; each Jew
   must make a personal decision about the Judaism which has come down
   through the ages. Nevertheless, all Jews who acknowledge themselves to
   be members of their people and its tradition thereby limit their
   freedom to some extent. [From [5]Gates of Mitzvot]
   
   This sounds general. It is. As the [6]1976 Centenary Statement
   ([7]http://www.ccarnet.org/platforms/centenary.html) says, Reform Jews
   are subject to both ethical responsibilities (both personal and
   social), as well as obligations in many other aspects of Jewish living
   (creating a Jewish home; life-long study; private prayer and public
   worship; observance of holidays, etc.) Within each area of Jewish
   observance Reform Jews must confront and study Jewish tradition, and
   exercise their individual autonomy.
