    Of course they do more than funerals. They do intermarriage and same gender marriage ceremonies and speak at their one a week prayer service. Interestingly, there are at least 2 female reform clergywomen in NYC who are reform converts, therefore not even Jewish.

    While Reform don’t believe in fully preserving intramarital gender diversity, they do occasionally perform opposite gender marriages.

    Although it is clear that Reform rabbis do actually have a job, why do they get paid so much?

    They are paid to mislead people, they are all fakes, however “nice” or “polite” they appear to be. Beware!

    You mean they get paid more because they work 24 hours?

    Who knows how much they get paid? I don’t know.
    They are fakes, that is all.

    I wouldn’t say they’re fakes; they don’t pretend to be anything beyond what they are.

    And the Gemara says that those who say hashem has mercy on the mother bird, you shut them up real quick because you make hashem ‘s laws ”mercy ” when In reality they are just laws.
    So you did a great job proving the opposite point from what you wanted. Thanks

    In order to be fake, there has to be a claim of authenticity.

    There is an implied claim of authenticity.

    Ready Now, according to a study on the website of the reform rabbinical [sic] organization, they make what I consider to be a lot of money. For small congregations, the median is $106,000. For megatemples, the median is over $281,000. Figures are from 2016-2017.

    The relevant point here is that Reform organizations are social or political organizations, not religious organizations. There are lots of things a Reform “Rabbi” can do for which the members of the organization are willing to pay him. But it has little or no connection to Torah observance.

    Reform Rabbis make more money because their congregations are bigger (800-1000 familes) and the dues at reform synangouges are also higher

    If you are a Rabbi at a Shtelbel you will never get a large salary, 50-80 familes cannot support $100,000 a year salary

    Reform “rabbis” have a job similar to most Protestant clergy, and tend to be well paid. Unlike rabbanim, who are professional scholars, the “reform” clergy have many “priestly” functions adopted from the Christians, particularly leading formal public services. Given that secular Jews tend to be rich (remember, getting rich was and is the main attraction of secularism for Jews), it is rational they will pay their servants well.

    they also charge $2000 for christianing one to be jewish which entails sprinkling ‘holy’ water

    Reform today is not the reform of 50 years ago, it is very weak and dying (The numbers are only claimed higher because they claim unaffiliated jews are reform, but in reality they are unaffiliated not reform)

    Some of the comments here are just childish, They will likely continue to get smalled and weaker except for a few congregations here and there. People take insulting their “rabbi” as a personal insult, so rather than insult the rabbi, show positive feeling to the lay people so they will become either Orthodox or a Friend of Orthodox, rather than an enemy

    OK so i admit I had to stop reading the never ending comments. However, as a former reform jew and a bh bas yisroel for many years, I have no.problem with the people themselves (including the nice reform rabbi who ran my father’s funeral and was asking me the halachas) my problem is the evil they have caused klal yisroel. And I give 2 examples. 1. People that are mamzerim as the reform have given second marriages without a Get when their first marriage “happened ” to have been in an orthodox shul…this happened to my mother thank the Lord she was past child bearing years. 2nd in my kiruv work i meet SO many peopLe who think they are Jewish and frum baalei teshuva ready for shdiuchim when they realize theit mother or grandma has a reform (or conservative) conversion. Zehu. Back to bais din to start conversion. (And no, it’s not a quick easy Conversion if u go to a reputable bis din) so while they may be wonderful people their ideas damage klal yisroel to such a bad extent. We will only realise when meshiach comes how many mamzerim or non Jewish generations there are that no one knew about. So, ya, I’m angry

    In addition to performing same gender intermarriages they are known to preside over Bark Mizvahs with the dogs wearing yarmalkas and talasim. You really can’t blame them since they have no knowledge that what they;re doing is wrong. There are presently 2 non Jewish female reform clergywomen in Brooklyn. They are both converted by reform and went to reform clergy schools.

    Reform Bark Mitzvahs are not a problem, as a dog is perfectly able to reach the same level in Judaism as any other Reform person.

    A reform jew can become a Baal Tshuva, a dog cannot

    Some people in Reform are not Jewish and they do not even know.
    Some people think reform is Judaism and they do not realize it is not Judaism but it is a cult.

    They invite Hamas and mess over Jews. They cause thousands oof Jews to drive on shabbos. They officiate questionable weddings. They want to destroy everything that’s holy in Israel. Thry preach that voting Obama and democrats will bring tikkun plan and that Donald Trump (best president to the Jews, so far) is Hitler.

    I came across a relevant quote yesterday:

    Rabbi Yochanan HaSandlar says: Every assembly that is [dedicated] to the sake of Heaven will in the end endure, but one that is not for the sake of Heaven will not, in the end, endure.
    Avos 4:14
