Candidly Speaking: British Jews under pressure – The demographic projections reflect snowballing intermarriage offset by the high birthrate of the ultra-Orthodox. | The Jerusalem Post
Reviewing the status of Anglo Jewry can lead to diametrically opposing conclusions. Residing in a northwest London Jewish suburb, one can easily be deluded into thinking that life for Jews in the UK is rosy. Jewish cultural and religious life is thriving, as exemplified by the mushrooming of synagogues and kosher facilities, not to mention the highly successful educational initiatives like Limmud. Indeed, insulated from the outside world and living and socializing primarily in a Jewish “ghetto,” it is not difficult to convince oneself that life in this Anglo Jewish Diaspora is almost idyllic.
