Jewish, and not cool enough

The world's largest Jewish House of Worship, Temple Emanu-el in Manhattan has just been hit with a $32 million dollar lawsuit. Get this - it seems that two former middle aged employees claim they were fired because they were not "young and hip" enough! The suit claims that "the ultimate goal was to replace and remove its older workers with young Jewish workers." This all occured after the congregation held a focus group exploring ways improve the synagogue's image. We have noticed a hipification of many synogogues in New York and a particularly suspicious rise in the number of hot young Rabbis. Could this be the next big Jewish Conspiracy?
