Our own Jerusalem Center for Conservative Judaism is featured in The Times of Israel – 800,000 Israeli Jews, or 13% of the country’s Jewish population, now self-identify as Reform or Conservative, a marked increase from numbers charted in previous studies. The study also found that the number of Reform or Conservative communities throughout Israel has climbed to 125, 56 of which have permanent synagogues.  There are 280 rabbis affiliated with the movements nationally, with 85 of those working in a communal capacity.
