The Jewish community has lost some of the most sensitive spiritual souls of this generation. They are Jews who were looking for G-d and found spiritual homes outside of Judaism. Their journeys traversed the Jewish community, but nothing there beckoned them. The creation of synagogue-communities in which the voices of seekers can be heard and their questions can be asked will challenge many loyalist Jews. It will upset and enrage them. But it would also enrich them.
–Rabbi Sidney Schwarz from “Finding a Spiritual Home”
