74% Of New York Jewish Kids Are Orthodox

I believe that close to half of Jews in America under 18 are Orthodox (while the Orthodox overall compose only about 12% of the American Jewish population).

The New York Times reports on New York: “Now, 40 percent of Jews in the city identify themselves as Orthodox, an increase from 33 percent in 2002; 74 percent of all Jewish children in the city are Orthodox.”

How can Reform and Conservative Jews, let alone secular Jews, have any passion about their way of life when it is plainly dying?

Only one way of living Jewish perpetuates itself — the Orthodox way.
