||Letter from the North London Liberal Jewish Congregation to Maurice Perlzweig, congratulating him upon his new appointment as Second Minister. Liberal Judaism is the other half of Progressive Judaism in the UK, dating from 1902. Officially organised as the Union of Liberal and Progressive Synagogues until 2003, in that year the ULPS officially renamed itself Liberal Judaism, which has always been the main term used for the movement it represents.
Although the Liberal movement does not identify itself as Reform (which has a specific meaning in British vocabulary), its beliefs and practices are sufficiently similar to American Reform that Americans habitually refer to British Liberal Judaism as a Reform movement. British Liberal Judaism is in practice much closer to American Reform than British Reform is.
