I’ve made no secret of the fact that I love and generally agree with Larry Kaufman (North American Board of the Union for Reform Judaism, National Board of the Association of Reform Zionists of America, Executive Committee of the World Union for Progressive Judaism’s North American Council, other impressive things).
Larry recently posted on the URJ’s iWorship listserve:
How can we pride ourselves on counting wormen for a minyan, if a minyan doesn’t count?
He was referring to a discussion about whether or not Reform Jews should care about making a minyan or whether we should plunge ahead with 1, 5, or 10 in the same way, as though there was a minyan.
Right on, Larry.
