Sounds good to me:
The percentage of young American Jews who consider themselves orthodox is growing, a trend that will likely reshape the US Jewish community, according to a report.

The study released last week by the American Jewish Committee, an advocacy group based in New York, found that 16 percent of Jewish adults ages 18-29 are Orthodox. That's nearly double the percentage of Orthodox among Jews ages 35-39 . . . .

The trend means a higher percentage of future Jewish leaders will probably be Orthodox, shifting the entire community in a more conservative direction, the American Jewish Committee said.
That's about half the article.
