The recently released study of the American Jewish community by the prestigious Pew Research Center points to some serious problems in the Conservative movement.  The survey reveals declining membership and the inability of the movement to retain its young people. As a rabbi who has been leading free, walk-in High Holy Day services for young Jews for the last 10 years, and as a Talmud professor at the Jewish Theological Seminary, I want to make some suggestions to keep the movement robust.
