One of the more troubling realities of the Modern Orthodox world today is an apparent disconnect between the tenets of Modern Orthodoxy and the beliefs of its adherents. It seems that there are many who identify with the community while lacking traditional beliefs; others live within Orthodoxy but yearn for a life of greater spirituality.
What is actually going in the minds and hearts of Modern Orthodox Jews – and does Modern Orthodoxy have a future? Are these problems endemic to Modern Orthodoxy, or do they exist across the Orthodox spectrum? Is there anything that can be done to reinforce spiritual values in our families, synagogues, classrooms, and communities?
Scott spoke with Rabbi Johnny Solomon in order to address these questions.
