In my last blog I discussed the results of the Pew Study and the implications of the reported trends for Jews in America and for Conservative Judaism.  Recently, a new study published by Dr. Theodore Sasson re-analyzed the data collected by the Pew researchers and drew different conclusions in a few key areas, leading to new insights and different directions for Jewish leadership to take to strengthen the Conservative Movement.
