    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.”"

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
