    To Jews who pray 3x a day, this image is absolutely ugly. It's like a transgender' rabbi' in drag. It boldly shouts disrespect for Halacha. It must be understood that this cute 'revolution' is but a death rattle from a religious philosophy in hospice. Why is that, you might ask? Because by and large, non-Orthodox women outside Israel have one of the world's lowest fertility rates. In the U.S. it is .9 children per Jewish mother with only 25% of those few children getting any meaningful Jewish education. (Parroting a script for the BM ceremony does not count. It's forgotten by the end of the pahty.) That means that this cult of liberalism has but 1.5 generations until they run out of enough financial supporters to maintain their institutions and professionals. Today, the majority of their 'rabbinic' students are women. As expected, the more it is perceived as a 'women's thing', fewer men participate. Very few men are interested any more in the role of 'rabbi'. The long term has never been a consideration for liberals. "How can we 'tikkun the whole world today?" It's primarily the here and now that is on their mind; not the future. Certainly not: "How are we going to have enough Jewishly knowledgeable and committed grandchildren to carry on?" So if there is a visually enclosed area for the next 30 years or so until they disappear, 'liberal Judaism' for lack of progeny will soon be a footnote in Jewish history sort of like the time of the Shabtai Tzvi. In the meantime, currently in N.Y. 63% of Jewish youth under 21 are Orthodox, and that percent is growing rapidly. Unless most liberal couples are willing to have 5-6 children and pay for 12 years of Jewish day school, there is no imaginable way to change their destiny. And that just ain't gonna happen. So let the women play with tefillin for now. It makes them feel empowered. Those about to be executed get to have a dream last meal. Next up: co-ed mikveh parties... Hey, why not?
