Reform Judaism is a liberal branch of Judaism and is typically characterized by lessened stress on ritual and personal observance.  Typically, it regards Jewish Law as non-binding and the individual Jew as autonomous.  It usually emphasizes openness to external influences and progressive values. The origins of Reform Judaism lie in 19th-century Germany, where Rabbi Abraham Geiger and his followers formulated its early principles. Since the 1970s, the movement has adopted a policy of inclusiveness and overall acceptance.  It does so by inviting as many as possible to partake in its communities. The movement is often identified with progressive political and social agendas.  Often, this is pursued under the traditional Jewish concept of tikkun olam, or “repairing the world”. Moreover, Tikkun olam is a central motto of many Reform Jews and action for its sake is one of the main channels for adherents to express their Jewish affiliation. 

Currently, the most significant population center of Reform Judaism is in North America.  In fact, with over 850 congregations in the U.S. and Canada, Reform Judaism has now become the largest Jewish movement throughout North America.
