JStandard: Zalman Alpert Analyzes Teaneck Modern Orthodoxy

In JStandard Zalman Alpert analyzes Modern Orthodoxy in Teaneck. He muses in the interview article, "Speaking of synagogues, Alpert continues, Teaneck’s dozen modern Orthodox shuls, and a growing number in other Bergen County communities such as Bergenfield, Englewood, and Fair Lawn, is also a new phenomenon in American Orthodoxy."

We wonder how many modern Orthodox Jews live in our town. Twelve synagogues, so 12,000 families? More? Fewer? Even in the best estimate case, it seems the impact of modern Orthodoxy rests not in quantity but in quality.
