Cost of an Observantly Observant Lifestyle
From a blog I follow that often features disturbing and informed observations on Orthodox Jewry at large in the U.S.;

"If you create a community that requires the members to be in the top 6% of US income, and makes one comfortable only if one is in the top 3% then you have a social problem."

The latest inflated statistics for the U.S. (you can guarantee they are; definitions notoriously inclusive of those with a Jewish father, etc), is 2.1% of the population (Jew, please...); what fraction of that fraction are Orthodox? About 10%...THIS IS NUTS.
