    I work with the Board of Deputies of British Jewry to publish this research. I’m afraid you have confused the mainstream orthodox community with the strictly orthodox community, so that this article is very confusing. For example, around 2/3 of the UK’s Jewish population is at least nominally orthodox – only roughly 15% are strictly orthodox. if you would care to contact me with a phone number I would be happy to explain the differences and help get the article clearer
