    Orthodox jews ( I don't mean haredi ) but jews who keep at least most the rules or live an orthodox lifestyle rather than reform are becoming fewer and fewer. It is slowly moving towards haredi on one side and on the other reform or people who just don't give a dam about religion full stop. There are alot more cars in the road on Saturday than there were when I came to Israel 10 years ago, religion is seems to have no meaning to more and more people. You might not like the haredi but they practise orthodox judaism and they are not backwards or radicals because of it they are observant jews. We need religion to start to mean a little bit more to people in Israel otherwise we are eventually go down the path of abandoning the concept of being a jewish state and become just like every other westernized state where religion is kept behind closed doors and if that happens there will be no purpose for Israels continued existence because it was created with the sole purpose of being a jewish sate so if its not that why does it exist?

The dating shame: Orthodox obsession with externals
