“The difference between Jewish inclusivism and pluralism.. is this. Inclusivism asserts that there is an authoritative set of beliefs that constitute Jewish faith. It involves, among other things, belief in the divine revelation of the Torah and the authority of rabbinic tradition, interpretation, and law…Inclusivism preserves Orthodoxy while not excluding the non-Orthodox from the covenantal community. A Jewish pluralist, on the other hand, would argue that liberal, Reform, Conservative, and secular Judaisms are equally legitimate ways of understanding the Jewish destiny. None is an error.”
“Orthodoxy is the decision to continue to understand tradition in the traditional way, as objective truth and external authority. Pluralism arises when a movement initially conceived in opposition to a tradition seeks to reaffirm its links with that tradition within the framework of a non-traditional consciousness.”
“Pluralism conceives Jewish unity in terms of modern consciousness. Inclusivism conceives it in terms of traditional consciousness. The two.. collide at the most fundamental conceptual level.”
“The inclusivist faith is that Jews, divided by where they stand, are united by what they are travelling towards, the destination which alone gives meaning to Jewish history: the promised union of Torah, the Jewish people, the land of Israel, and God.”
