    We know how the imported bandof Judaism works in the States--a largely gnorant jewish community, for whom even Bilalik's Cultural National vision of a genuinely Secular Judaism has not taken root among the erstwile educaed Jews in that mega community. The cosces are there, except the patter of an offical Rabbinate is what we get here. As it is, Conservaive and Reform congreations can find themselves a friendly Communiye Cetner set up shop, and benefit from all the goodies that most Orthodox synagoges can only dream of getting--regular budgets aIt would seem that the people who be Secular and non-Observant and still want to claim some kind of Judaism forget that all the Traditional texts speak of Jews as "servantts of God", and not the other way round. Then too, its obvious that some Haredi and other Halachically observant Jews are oot innocent in the game for budges and the claim to "nearness to God", You don't have to worry any, the Jewish demography is clearly in favor of the Traditionally Observant and Halacically Observant Jews over the next seveeral decades. That the Amereican Jewiish numbers is declining is clear and the greater proportion of Olim from North America are Hallacially Observant coming here to fulfill the Mitzvah of Yeshivah b' Eretzyisrael, as you,did, in your way.. Stop chepping, accept the facts around you learn to be more tolerantof Jews who disagree with you.
