The sea-change in American Jewry

I have often written about the current dismaying trajectory of the American Jewish community. With some three quarters of them identifying with the universalist, left-wing mindset, both in religious and secular life, they are positioning themselves on the wrong side of the war of civilisation being waged against the west from within while their children are progressing from indifference towards Israel to outright hostility. So much is the common source of much anguished discussion amongst those who care about this decline.

An astute and moving article in The American Spectator takes this one stage further. Dov Fischer, an adjunct professor of law and American orthodox rabbi, writes that a huge change is under way amongst American Jews analagous to the way the southern Democrats turned into Republican voters. It took them a century but, eventually repelled by the Democratic party, they did it.

    Melanie Griffiths is great, but I wish she would read her fellow Jew’s book Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg to get off this Fascist == Extreme Right myth.

      Goldberg actually wrote something that makes conservative sense??! (He’s a regular on Jewish World Review — a nice daily compendium of mostly conservative viewpoints — and his views often make me scratch my head.)

    Conservative and Reform Judaism were once as loyal to their people as the Orthodox, but that has been changing as the underlying article points out. I’m from the older generation of Conservative Jews who still retain that loyalty. I have no problem with my torch being passed to the Orthodox, who I respect.

    Jews can endure anything except continuous stability.
