right?'
What is the reason behind
the demand for stricter
kashrut supervision, the in-
creasingly painstaking obser-
vance of Jewish ritual, the
larger families, and the grow-
ing attention to appearances:
dark suits instead of modern
wardrobe, beards rather than
clean-shaven faces? There is
no agreement on the answer.
Rabbi E.B. Freedman of
Yeshivath Beth Yehudah
believes the more intense
observance by today's Or-
thodox is a result of better
Jewish education. Likewise,

"I like Hume. I like
Kant. But I don't
know if I'd want
my son to learn it."

the Kollel's Rabbi Moshe
Schwab says the phenomenon
is a result of the Orthodox
community's coming of age.
"It's a young, intelligent,
basically knowledgable com-
munity. They want to build a
foundation on a scholarly
basis?'
Rabbi Yitzchak Kagan,
president of the Lubavitch
Foundation's Michigan
region, notes that "to live an
Orthodox lifestyle has become
easier, acceptable and more
compatible with an American
lifestyle. There's not a seven-
day work week. There's flex-
time. Eating (kosher food) has
become easier.
"The biggest factor is that
people are looking for an an-
chor in an increasingly
demoralized society. You've
got your two cars, your wife,
your kids. People still wake
up and say, 'What's the point?
What's it for?' "
"People want to achieve a
greater authenticity to their
lives," Debbie Rothbart sug-
gests. "Judaism is a religion
that speaks to the mind and
to the heart."
Once in danger of disap-
pearing from the American
Jewish scene, Orthodoxy is
thriving today. "We were the
breakthrough generation
that showed that you could do
it," says Rabbi Freedman, 35.
There is a paradox that the
Orthodox are either unable or
unwilling to explain: Despite
the community's increasing
strength and numbers, a seg-
ment is growing more insular
and many others are fearful
that their children may be
spirited away by the glitter of
secular society.
This fear may be another
