          the development of the modern Jewish movements. It then
          discusses the key issues, that have forced the Movement to come
          to terms with its identity, such as: The struggle to create a
          modern form of traditional Jewish law, the demand to ordain
          women as rabbis, pressure to accept homosexual rabbis, and the
          recognition that much of its membership is largely unobservant.
          Also looks at the movement's relationship with the state of
          Israel.]
