I stopped caring about my community, my neighbors, and those I serve. I stopped caring today because a once noble profession has become despised, hated, distrusted, and mostly unwanted. I stopped caring today because parents refuse to teach their kids right from wrong and blame us when they are caught breaking the law.
Synagogue shooting sparks massive increase in donations to Jewish groups American Judaism is broken. American Judaism is broken because the Jewish left broke it. It was popularized in the s and s by radicals like Michael Lerner, who founded the extreme left-wing magazine, Tikkun.
Since then, we have been led to believe that the purpose of the Jews in the world is to campaign for higher taxes, sexual permissiveness, reduced military spending, illegal immigration, opposition to fracking, the banishment of religion from the public square and every other liberal cause under the sun — all in the name of God.
But the truth is that tikkun olam and its leftist politics have no basis in Judaism.
Tikkun olam is not Judaism at all but a distinct religion, whose adherents, it might be said, have culturally appropriated this ancient faith.
This religion of tikkun olam commands the allegiance of most non-Orthodox Jews and some Orthodox oneswho make up the overwhelming majority of the American Jewish community. The dogma of this religion is appealingly simple: Judaism is tikkun olam, which is social justice, which is liberalism.
The Jews are called upon to do no less — and no more — than cultivate a liberal paradise in America. In this, liberal Jews have often had the hypocritical backing of the celebrity corps — literati, Hollywood executives, academics, politicians and financiers — who say one thing in public while, in several cases, doing unspeakable things in private.
But above all, this liberalism — this tikkun olam — teaches that the Jewish People is an outdated and chauvinistic relic, with no need for a nation-state of its own in its ancient homeland.
But now the tikkun olam movement is in disarray.

Its activists have been evicted from the White House, together with their messiah, replaced by a coalition of religious Christians and traditionalist Jews.
And natural as it comes to the political exiles to oppose the new administration, these activists are discovering that left-wing social justice marches have no place for Jewish warriors. And so the Jews have to choose between social justice and being Jewish. Chabon and Waldman have made their choice.
But there is an alternative. These Jews know that their ancestors did not live to worship a political party nor die for faddish causes. They recognize that the American Jewish future depends on overcoming the superficial and ignorant equation of Judaism with leftist politics. What is needed is a real Jewish renewal — a community that stands for religious liberty, not against it; affirms the alliance between America and Israel, rather than undermines it; and above all believes it is a community that has a compelling reason to persist.- The subject of illegal migration into the United States is a very controversial and challenging issue; but overall America’s systematic approach for regulating illegal immigrants entering our country has failed.
Thus immigration requires a set of paper work and recognition by the government agencies of the country involved in the process. Thus inability to fulfill all the norms and conditions, paper work and disclosures results in Illegal immigration. Illegal immigration is mostly observed between the people of a poor country moving towards richer country.
