NJ.com: Toms River bans real estate solicitation amid Orthodox Jewish boom

Expect to hear many more stories like this in the coming years. The exponential Orthodox Jewish demographic growth in the Mid-Atlantic will be a game-changer for Judaism, in America and beyond, as the ominous math of this PDF demonstrates.  The future of the American Judaism is going to look much different than its present.  It will be Orthodox and highly observant, lower-income, insular, indifferent to the State of Israel, clashing with modernity, populous, and increasingly at odds with the American political establishment over public assistance and religious accommodations.  The next great generational challenge for Messianic Jews is how we relate to this new Orthodox generation and come to their aid.
