    Wow it so nice see all these comments written by ex C jews who probalby were either members of USY, Attended Solomon Schecter, or Attened Ramah. It is sad to see the downfall of our old movement. But we were not raised to be reform jews which the momement has now become. I would say the majority of us are now at various levels of Orthodoxy represent CJ's greatest success. We have retained the ruach given to us as children and teenagers and have moved on to a movement which retains this spirit for adults. CJ has lost its way and definitely lost our generation of which most became reform but a significant minority became spread throughout the orthodox world where we have found our home. My advise DONT follow the USCJ the USCJ should follow USY, Ramah and Solomon Schecter. They are the three most successful arms of the whole movement and when they're gone your gone. Not a wish just a warning
