Hooray for Avraham Bronstein! Were it not for him, I might never have learned that the society of People Who Think They're Practicing Judaism But Really Aren't just gained a flood of new members.

Avraham informs us that Dr. Yaakov Stern was "recently forced to conclude that Modern Orthodoxy is not Judaism." Why? Well, for one thing, certain people who call themselves Modern Orthodox rely on the Lower East Side eruv. Now that is definitely not Judaism.

I'm sorry to be flippant about this -- I realize that it's a major issue for many halakhic Jews -- but do you people realize how much you're limiting yourselves here?

Ah, well. It's nice to have company.
