What’s the difference?

Orthodox believe both the Written Law (the Torah) and an Oral Law are given and written by God. They do not believe these laws can be changed.Conservative Jews believe the laws should be observed but that Conservative rabbis can change laws. Also, they do not believe that God actually wrote the Torah.Reform/ Liberal Jews do not believe in the divine authorship of the Torah, and do not believe that any of the laws are binding (except the 10 Commandments) . They think every Jew should only take from Judaism what is meaningful to him/her. Reform Jews can seem very similar to Secular Jews, who follow no religion.
