Gary Rosenblatt’s column, “Mind The Gap Between Orthodox And Other Jews” (Dec. 2) is basically a good piece, and a reasonable attempt at fairness. His penultimate sentences, however, indicate why there probably won’t be any dialogue.
If the non-Orthodox are inexorably disappearing via assimilation, intermarriage, late marriage, no marriage and fewer children than necessary for replacement — not to mention a knee-jerk leftism, an ultra-liberal set of values that allies them politically with many who would destroy Israel — many of the Orthodox will ask: With whom is there to dialogue? About what is there to talk? We’re going one way; they’re going in the opposite direction.
