More representative of current Judaism making it what should be seen as what the foundation of today's Judaism should be rather than what it is.

I prefer to answer questions with questions. I would say

"How do you feel when an Orthodox Jew says that you [the reform Jew] are not even Jewish?"

I don't think that "better" is well defined, nor do I think that it is for anyone to judge how 'good' a Jew anyone else is.

If we become Reform Jews aren't we becoming Christianity w/o Jesus since the 613 mitzvot are for the most part being thrown out the door. Is Reform the new 'Sadducees' ?

From what I know, Reform doesnít believe that the Torah is binding upon a Jew, their philosophy is if you want to keep it and be kosher, fine, if not, fine also...They also do not believe that Jews are G-dís Chosen People (or is that the Reconstructionists?)...

So why claim to be Jewish, if the essence of being one no longer exists.

For me Reform Judaism looks like a Jewish version of Christianity. But Conservative Judaism looks more like a more modern version of Judaism.
