    What a wonderful article. Thank you. I attended Biennial for the first time this year and totally agree with you.

    Who are you to judge what makes someone the “worst adherents”? This piece is condescending & patronizing at best, disgustingly judgmental at worst. Shame on you.

    Agreed, Kara. This is a pretty patronizing and self-serving reflection. Of course, Rabbi Goldstein is entirely entitled to her own opinions and to find a Jewish environment where she is most comfortable. But this piece smacks of arrogance and a condescending demeanor. It sounds to me like Rabbi Goldstein is just trying to justify her background in the eyes of her non-Reform colleagues.
