Orthodox Leadership

“Despite the internal health of Orthodoxy and the several thousands who have joined its ranks as baalei teshuvah, religious returnees, the rest of Jewry continues on its path of secularisation. For generations, Orthodox leaders had seen their ranks as an embattled minority. Today the opportunity exists for them to exercise leadership on a far wider scale, and some have seized the initiative.”
