Orthodox Judaism thrives even though it continues to face stringent observances and numbers rising. This is largely due to joseph Lieberman, the Connecticut senator who became the year 2000’s democratic vice presidential candidate. The eyes of the world and America suddenly turned towards Orthodox Judaism, which was what Joseph Lieberman practiced proudly and openly. Journalists poured over his life as Lieberman once stated that he is an observant Jew. In later years with current president Donald Trump in the seat as American President the world took notice again as both his daughter Ivanka Trump as well as her husband Jared Kushner are Orthodox Jews.
While joseph Lieberman was representative of decades past’s Orthodox Judaism, it remains a fact that modern day Orthodox Judaism is integrated into society seamlessly without serious effect. After 1970 Jews have grown confident, numbers have increased, they are public figures. At the same time would Jews and communities comment on the fact that Lieberman were seen in the senate not resting but working on their Sabbath and that he did not wear his yarmulke when he should have, which were subtle changes but significant to Jewish belief.
Something else he did which was frowned upon by the Jews was that during Tisha B’Av fast a period when nothing could be consumed him was seen drinking water. In the modern orthodox Jewish world two other major categories formed which are called Haredi. They like to divide Orthodox into modern which in their eyes are non-existent as too many Jewish laws are broken while the Orthodox believe they continue to live as they should. You might not find a Jew entering a public brick-and-mortar casino but find them gambling online at places like Onlinebahisyap in the privacy of their own homes. Times change and religions and believes even though they remain firm adapt to keep up with what the world brings to the table.
What they do not always realize is that all Orthodoxy are better educated and strictly observant with children of Orthodox Jews increase and maintain the allegiance to the strong traditional Judaism beliefs and that non-orthodox Jews are increasingly more attracted to becoming orthodox Jews.
You will find in politics that orthodox Jews continues to support politics, but conservative policies take precedence and they will vote increasingly on issues like faith based charities, public funding and schooling. In the challenging world of feminism though the orthodoxies remain with women separated by low walling or curtain from men and only men allowed to bless the Torah, read or lead services. Jewish communities continue to split and changes are seen with women taking more serious roles in religious participation even though wedged are driven in mainstream orthodox communities and the smaller communities.
