Who Speaks for US Jewry? Should We Care?

Just a quick couple of related pre-Shabbat questions for you. Who Speaks for US Jewry? Should We Care?

If you're an American Jew, do you agree with the policies agenda of the newby extreme Left J Street? It is getting all the publicity and media coverage. It promotes policies that are the exact opposite of AFSI Americans for a Secure Israel, the very underfunded and ignored veteran group. Or is there an organization you like which falls more in the Center?

I'm curious and would seriously like to hear your opinion in the comments, thanks.

Nobody speaks for USA Jews.

There is no Chief Rabbi, and the Jews
are divided into many different factions.

I estimate that in Brooklyn alone,
there are at least 25 different
kinds of Orthodox Jews.

Most USA Jews identify with extreme Left,
so they also agree with the extreme Left
J Street organization.

But the extreme Left Jews are shrinking
rapidly, Orthodox Jews are growing rapidly.

About Jewish organizations: there is
a new Jewish organization that has not
received the attention it deserves:

Thanks for the info, but we can't ignore the media and political power of the Leftist Jews. Is anyone trying to counter it at all?

Mr. Cohen said...

To avoid public L"H, I will answer your question by email.

Thanks, received. Though I don't know why you won't say it out loud.

It's true that there is really no representation of real Jews. Most Jews are 'liberals' and represent their political idealogy as they have no religious idealoogy but created a religion out of their G-Dless idealogy. They don't care what and who we really are and what the Jew should stand for. It is very distressing, but that's what assimilation has done.
