The Times Goes Jew-Spotting in Michigan
It turns out that Jews have many different thoughts about Israel. Who knew? Marc Tracy:
The article concerns all American Jews, but it is datelined "FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich." In other words, the Times's religion correspondent traveled to this Detroit suburb for the piece. He gathered a focus group consisting of non-participating members of Birmingham Temple, a secular humanistic synagogue there, in order to ask them about Israel and get a response from "the demographic middle."
I hereby declare, now and forever, that the non-participating members of a secular humanistic synagogue, whatever that is, in suburban Detroit, do not speak for me. Does this place me outside the "demographic middle?"
