Why do you want to punish 80% of "secular" Israel for the crimes of Haredim? You are blaming these Israelis for the lack of a unified, progressive Jewish strategy. Our Jewish leaders in N Amer are are ineffectual or lazy or even worse, have agreed to give Israel to the Orthodox and divide N. America between the other Progressive Jewish groups. We progressive Jews must demand that our leaders take on the Haredim, organize progressive Judaism like Chabad does, bring our Judaism to 80% of Israelis, invest in building synagogues in Israel and have some of these leaders actually move to Israel.
