Reform Rabbi Calls for "Cheshbon haNefesh" of His Own Group

«We failed Zuckerberg and will continue to fail young people like him because the pluralistic theologies of Reform Judaism articulated since the 1960s make it difficult to grasp what we Reform Jews believe on any given issue. Our faith is too amorphous. Math and science nerds, in particular, may be the type most likely to bolt. This is ironic because one of the raisons d'être of Reform Judaism was to create an approach to Judaism that would be scholarly and scientific. But we have lost our way, ignoring scholarship in favor of any type of "spirituality," no matter how vacuous.»

Why do we always assume that just because someone was born Jewish that he continues to care about it at all?
