In a provocative statement that rattled many American Jewish leaders, an association of Orthodox rabbis proclaimed yesterday that the Reform and Conservative movements are ''not Judaism at all'' and beckoned Jews to worship in synagogues affiliated with the Orthodox movement. The association, the Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the United States and Canada, had signaled its intention to issue the statement more than a week ago, but its harshness startled many Jewish leaders. Although it is difficult to determine the precise size and influence of the association, it apparently speaks for a small minority of Orthodox rabbis in North America, and leaders in both the Orthodox movement and the Conservative and Reform movements characterized it as a right-wing fringe group. The Rabbinical Council of America, the nation's largest organization of Orthodox rabbis, distanced itself from Rabbi Ginsberg's comments. Leaders in the Conservative and Reform movements said the statement has no practical impact, but said they worried about its effect in creating or widening schisms between groups of American Jews. The statement by the Union of Orthodox Rabbis did not represent a new or newly expressed belief.
