Statistics Are Like a Bathing Suit...

91.2% agree the State of Israel has intrinsic religious significance...
92.7% think it's a mitzvah to have friendly relations with all (i.e., even non-Orthodox) Jews...
Only 7.3% think women should not study Torah (even though 25.3% think they shouldn't study Talmud)...
Even 33.8% think women can be ordained as religious figures (just don't call her rabbi, please!).

It's the results of the Yeshiva College Commentator's survey to assess campus attitudes to religious, political, and social issues. Is it a bellwether for the future of American Modern Orthodoxy? Is it possible that the so-called "charedization" is exaggerated?
Read the story or download the stats.

But why didn't they ask if people believe in God this time?
