How can you blame the phenomenon that you are describing on the Rabinate when a similar pattern is seen throughout the diaspora as well. There the majority of Jews have never seen or had anything to do with an Orthodox Rabbi. The phenomenon you are describing happens when Jews reject the Torah and their Jewish identity and want to be like all the other nations. In the United States, intermarriage among non-Orthodox Jews is extremely high. Hebrew schools are closing one by one as people are not interested in Judaism or Israel. The only reasons Jews are connected to Israel is because of the Torah. Without the Torah that connection will be lost in a few generations.
