    Certainly agree with Steve on his basic point. Iam curious as to anyones comments on the split from the mainline Conservative movement of the UTJ-that of Rabbis Price, David Feldman etc.
    BTW any listing of Rabbi in my post need not necessarily mean that I would agree with them on halacha-it is simply that I would refer to anyone by the tiltle they request-Father Greeley, Pope Benedict, Cardinal Omalley etc.

    From my past experience with the C movement, their take on things is that NOTHING they do can be construed as being against halacha. Because once they vote to do something, that IS halachah. Their taking a vote IS the halachic process, so once they vote to do something that was previously forbidden, either the halacha changed, or it was always OK to do and no one realized it yet.
