Anyone here switch from Reform to Conservative or (modern) Orthodox? What’s your experience?

The reform/secular and Orthodox communities in my city (St. Louis) feel pretty segregated so I don’t have much experience outside of the reform movement. My boyfriend and I both feel that our Reform temple is missing something that’s hard to articulate and are hoping to try out a variety of different synagogues from different movements to see if we can find it. We’re trying a conservative synagogue next week but something’s making me curious to try Modern Orthodox as well…

I’m curious about the experiences of other people who switched movements. Why did you switch? What surprised you? What stood out as different or the same?
