Ikkarei Emunah & the Youth

There was an interesting Houses of Worship (not a neighbor to the House of Hock) article in last weekend's Wall Stree Journal, focusing on how even Evangelical Christian teenagers who are gung ho on Jesus tend to have theologically incorrect beliefs. This should comes as no surprise to anyone who has ever worked with Modern Orthodox Jewish youth. Thank God Judaism does't care about Dogma or belief, but only about keeping Halakhah. At some point I may discuss how most Modern Orthodox Jews & in particular the young get their religious values from popular culture (TV, Movies, Music, etc.) & not from Jewish texts.
