Reform rabbi Alfred Geiger Moses formulated and promulgated teachings he termed as “Jewish Science” to counter the growing influence of Christian Science in the American Jewish community. He used the techniques and aims of Christian Science, applied psychology, and New Thought to raise awareness of God’s presence. He also urged the incorporation of the more personal goals of health, success, and happiness into Reform’s ideological understanding of ethical monotheism.
