Also known as Masorti Judaism, Conservative Judaism has its roots in Positive-Historical Judaism, developed in Germany during the 1850s as a reaction to the more liberal positions taken by Reform Judaism. Its term is intended to indicate that Jews should conserve Jewish tradition rather than abandon or reform it; it does not indicate political conservatism.
