Amazing articl, however .... It directly contradicts the report of the JTA here: **At Reform biennial, energy, Obama and handwringing over the next generation** As the Reform movement looks beyond its largest biennial conference in history, the question of how to stem the exodus of young Jews looms large. Full story: http://www.jta.org/news/article/2011/12/20/3090839/at-reform-biennial-energy-obama-and-hand-wringing-over-next-generation That article has the following: "One need look no further than Yoffie’s own children, whom he talked about in his Shabbat sermon at the Reform biennial conference held Dec. 14-18 at a hotel just outside Washington. His daughter, Adina, attends a Modern Orthodox shul, and his son Adam, 28, finds temple boring and doesn’t go much at all, according to Yoffie. “They agree on what they don’t want,” Yoffie said. “They don’t want their synagogue to be the synagogue of their youth.”"
