I know there are branches of Judaism, but I thought there were branches in-between these on this site. We only have the first three in my city, but when I travel I've met people who say they are Modern Orthodox or Conseradox. Is there other branches and if so what~? What else can you say about the branches in-between the ones mentioned in this article:

There is a newish movement called Jewish Renewal. it seems to focus on moving and meaningful prayer. I think they are not so much focused on belief but on style of prayer service. I don't know much about it though so someone correct me if I'm wrong. https://www.aleph.org/

We had a music group that came to perform here from Israel, Nava Tehilah, associated with the Jewish Renewal movement. The music was phenomenal and I bought two CD's. :-) Here is one of their songs:

You mean Consevadox. It is for those of us who feel comfortable in Orthodox as well as Conservative. But our ideals fall somewhere in the middle of both.

The song you refereed to as "their song", it isn't. It is a verse taken out of the last portion of "The Mourners Kaddish" in the Reform prayer book, which is called something different in their book.

This is the first recording of it from a Hasidic festival in 1969.

All these traditional prayers have a zillion artistic interpretations. I was just saying that this is their interpretation.

Ok. I was just asking because you mentioned that there were only three in your city.

No worries....
