As expressed by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, To this day, Conservative Judaism strikes a middle road between Reform and Orthodox Judaism.  In contrast, from the viewpoint of Orthodox Jews, there has always been and there remains today only one true Judaism, the Judaism they believe was handed down in unbroken form through the generations from Moses until today (see #3). ” In other words, either you were a religious Jew or you were not. ” Even within Orthodox Judaism, however, there is a right wing and a left wing, the former refusing to yield in any way to modern “enlightened” thinking, and the latter adhering strictly to all the foundations of Orthodoxy (such as Sabbath observance and the dietary laws) but being much more incorporated into the larger culture.
The last two sections, Nevi’im and Ketuvim, can be called Nakh, but this term is primarily used in religious Jewish circles. Although the contents of the Tanakh are identical to the contents of the Old Testament, the books are organized differently, following slightly different conceptual lines. The order of the books that is familiar to most Christian readers follows the Septuagint tradition and is divided as follows: Law (the five books of Moses); History (Joshua–Esther); Poetry and Wisdom (Job–Song of Solomon) and Prophets (Isaiah–Malachi, including Daniel and Lamentations).
Observance Orthodox: Every aspect of Jewish life is mapped out, including when to pray, what prayers to say every day and on every occasion, what texts to study, how to observe the Sabbath and holy days, what to eat, family relations and laws of purity, etc. Orthodox Jews are expected to be fully observant. The more religious the community, the more synagogue attendance is constant through the year. Reform: The ethical and moral commands of the Torah and Prophets should be followed, and a Jewish life cycle (circumcision, bar mitzvah, worship on the Sabbath, celebrating the holy days) is encouraged but not required.
