                Reformed Judaism is perhaps one of the least religious of the three major sects of Judaism.  Like Orthodoxy it started in Europe during its emancipation period.  This form of Judaism started in the 1800s.  The Jews who are of this sect think that “the Oral and Written laws were a product of human hands”.   It also finds that the key principles of Judaism are important for the Jewish people.  It also says that it is important that there is equality between the sexes and that there is a universal emphasis on learning, duty, and obligation.  There are ethical responsibilities that are both personal and social that God has taught us about according to Reformed Jews.  These are but some of the important facets of Reformed Judaism.
