The Conference of European Rabbis declared the nascent Open Orthodox ideological movement beyond the pale of traditional Judaism last week, following recent critical statement by both ultra- and modern- Orthodox organizations in the United States.

Those previous statements, made by Agudath Israel of America and the more moderate Rabbinical Council of America, appeared to herald the beginning of a schism within Orthodox Judaism in America over the issue of the ordination of women and the place of women in religious leadership.
