Reader comment on: Chosen People, Choosing Left

Submitted by Leslie Fox (United States), Sep 25, 2009 11:05

The obvious question is: in a situation where the Jews have been SO outspoken about worries of separation of church and state, why is the president of the U.S even HAVING a conference call with 1000 rabbis (were they a mix of all 3 Jewish denominations? or just Reform?) and WHY would Obama feel he should 'inject' himself into giving advice on High Holiday sermon topics? Talk about 'Chutzpah'!! And those rabbis? well, giving them the benefit of the doubt, perhaps they thought the conference call was just to have the president wish them 'Shana Tova' - they might not have expected his health care 'sell job' would be part of the call.

Well, with the inevitable birthrate 'time bomb', in 150-200 years there will be very few liberal Jews remaining - the remnant which remains will have assimilated. Orthodox and Ultra-Orthodox (Hassidim) will constitute the core population of Jews in America. Their social views are more conservative. I won't be around to see it - but that is my prediction.
