Contemporary Orthodoxy

On Saturday night we too attended the screening of Ethan Isenberg's documentary, The Lonely Man of Faith. Followed by a panel which was, frankly, depressing. In the wake of which I wanted to point out that the Academy of the Hebrew Language recently coined the term hadatah, which they define simply as "the opposite of secularization". Meaning, apparently, "the process whereby religious thinking, practises and institutions lose religious significance".

Could you elaborate? What exactly was depressing?
