6. Really, this is fundamentally inaccurate...
given that the orthodox Jews are doing quite well. If anything it marks the death of "secular Judaism" - in itself a rather tenuous concept - rather than Judaism per se.

To the extent that there was anything substantial underpinning secular Judaism, it generally boiled down to commemoration of the holocaust. Compelling perhaps but not enough to really unite a community in the way that having a common language or religion does.
