Reader comment on item: The Orthodox Future of Judaism

Submitted by kamenka (Israel), Feb 18, 2013 at 10:59

the majority never orthodox and never ultra like today's . past evidence is of as wide a variety of jewish observance as currently right back to bayit sheni and earlier. i remember the judaism of even 50 years ago when a jew was not a man in a long beard who dressed up in black but a man whose behaviour and mitsvot were jewish- unlike a majority of today's orthodox whose idea of judaism seems inspired by right wing christians-the jews theyd prefer us to be.
