The first Reform Jewish synagogue is founded in London. Reform Judaism is a movement that aims to modernize Jewish traditions so that Judaism can be more compatible with surrounding, modern cultures.

Jewish law, for example, is interpreted as communicating basic values and guidelines which need to be applied to new situations rather than as rigid restrictions and rules which must be followed no matter what the circumstances.
