Judaism as observed by Conservative Jews.
noun
1.
a movement reacting against the radicalism of Reform Judaism, rejecting extreme change and advocating moderate relaxations of traditional Jewish law, by an extension of the process by which its adherents claim traditional Orthodox Judaism evolved Compare Orthodox Judaism, Reform Judaism

A branch of Judaism that insists on keeping some requirements of the Jewish law, or Torah (circumcision of male infants, for example, and the eating of unleavened bread during Passover), but allows for the adaptation of some of the law’s requirements to fit modern circumstances (for example, some of the details of Jewish dietary laws). (Compare Orthodox Judaism and Reform Judaism.)
