World Union Will Publish History of European Liturgical Changes, Reform Innovations

A history of the liturgical changes and innovations in the Reform movement in Europe will be published here March 12 by the World Union for Progressive Judaism, the international organization of liberal Judaism. Titled “Prayerbook Reform in Europe,” the history is the work of Dr. Jakob J. Petuchowski, a professor of rabbinical and Jewish theology at the Hebrew Union College Jewish Institute of Religion. It traces the shifts of mood in theology and esthetics in Reform Judaism during the last 150 years.
