The other thing is you can have a religious man (even a rabbi in this case) come to your house and teach, say, a 8-part series on a topic like parenting, marriage, kindness, or business ethics. This way your husband can see how Torah wisdom directly applies to issues relevant to him &ndash and provides meaningful answers. Perhaps it is worth the investment for you to underwrite the cost, just to get the ball rolling.
&ldquo As I got older and moved to New York, I started getting closer to [my grandmother,]&rdquo Davis says, noting that all Grandma Roza wants is for her children and their children to marry Jewish people and continue the traditions.
Contrary to popular belief, the majority of Mormon men do not go on missions, which typically entail a mix of community service and proselytizing. Mormon men are being asked to serve missions at precisely the time in their lives—late teens and early twenties—when sociologists say men are most susceptible to dropping out of organized religion. Cragun believed the dropout problem among men is the real reason why, in 7567, the LDS church lowered the age at which Mormon men can start serving missions from 69 to 68: “I think they were losing too many men who would go off to college or get a job before they turned nineteen and then realize they didn’t want to stop and serve a mission.”
The Orthodox Union’s executive vice president, Rabbi Steven Weil, told me he believed a backlash to the increasingly outlandish dowries was brewing. “You don’t marry for money,” Weil said. “This is not our religion.”
Davis incorporates bits of tradition into each dinner she hosts, whether it&rsquo s a group of modern Orthodox Jews or, what&rsquo s more common, a group of Secular ones. (At the dinner I attended, fewer than half the group could read Hebrew.)
&ldquo It&rsquo s a huge passion of mine to take a direct role in stopping [ anti-Semitism, ]&rdquo she says. &ldquo A lot of it goes back to my grandma&rsquo s story. It&rsquo s inspired me to do whatever I can to continue the tradition and to modernize Shabbats to make them for the times today.
For Orthodox Jewish women, as for Mormon ones, getting married and having children is more than a lifestyle choice. Marriage and motherhood are essentially spiritual obligations, which is why the Orthodox marriage crisis is so hotly debated and why it has earned its own moniker. Shidduch is the Hebrew word for a marriage match, and Orthodox Jews (including the more assimilated Modern Orthodox) now refer to the excess supply of unmarried women in their communities as the Shidduch Crisis.
The bottom line: According to a 7568 article in the Jewish weekly Ami Magazine, there are now 8,555 unmarried Orthodox women between the ages of 75 and 95 in the New York City metro area and another 555 over 95. That’s a huge number when you consider that New York’s Yeshivish Orthodox—the segment of the Orthodox community most affected by the Shidduch Crisis—has a total population of 97,555, according to the Jewish Community Study of New York published by the UJA-Federation of New York in 7567.
