  1. This is the tip of the iceberg. To say there is censorship in the organizational Jewish community is an understatement. At least two well-known alt.Jewish magazines are in imminent danger of going out of business, because they can’t get a grant unless they agree to tow the Likud party line. No wonder young people are leaving this community in droves — who wants to be part of a mini make-believe totalitarianism in which only some views are tolerated? It’s easy to opt out, and the smart kids are doing it.
