The Greatest Threat to Yiddishkeit ….

Rabbi Horowitz is writing an article on what are the greatest threats to Yiddishkeit. Over the last few months, especially because of an article on how Pesach Hotels are the greatest threat. There has been a lot of talk about the subject. If it isn’t Pesach Hotels, then what do you think the greatest threats are? Please comment on this and list your top three issues that Frum Yidden face, that are a real threats to Yiddishkeit. 

1) Lack of ability by Rabanim/Gedolim to connect with todays generation. 

2) Modernity. Crown Heights, Flatbush, Boro Park, Monsey, many of todays young newly married generation is much more modern then the previous one. If you follow the “grandfather wears a bekesh, father wears a suit, what will the son wear …” method of thinking, I think we’re all in big trouble. 

3) Abuse Scandals. This is a problem that is 100 times bigger then the average person thinks it is. In most cases, especially if no charges were filed, most people never even find out about it. In many cases where they are arrested and charges are filed many people try to defend them and a lot of the time they get away with it. It’s a problem that isn’t going away and its getting worse. 

What do you think?
