"Forty years ago, the Progressive Movement was widely seen as nothing more than an import from the West...But such is no longer the case. Thinking back to the young scouts with whom I camped, worked and prayed so many years ago - those kids and their children are now part of an Israeli Reform movement that has become a native, distinctly Israel expression of progressive Judaism.  In fact, despite all odds, and despite the roadblocks and obstructions presented, Reform Judaism in Israel is flourishing as an alternative path to meaningful, Jewish spiritual and ethical expression." -Rabbi David J Meyer of Temple Emanu-El Marblehead
