Conference on the future of the Jews probably has no future

Will talk lead to action? asks the Jewish Telegraphic Agency of the 2007 Conference on the Future of the Jewish People, sponsored by the Jewish People Policy Planning Institute.
The short answer is "probably not." If talk could lead to action, then there would probably have been no need for a conference on the future of the Jewish people. The future will be like the past. The "important people" will gather at conferences to show themselves and to be seen, to make statements and to be important. The work will be done by others, if at all. As it is written "The work of the righteous is done by others." Who can be more righteous than these leading lights of the Jewish community? So they are waiting for others to do the work.  
As the article notes:

Some of the more effective Jewish initiatives in recent years have started outside the organized Jewish community, such as birthright israel. That program, which in bringing more than 100,000 young Diaspora Jews to Israel has helped bolster Jewish identity as well as ties to Israel and among fellow Jews, was adopted by the organized Jewish community only after much resistance...

And the guarantee that the conference will have no result is given here:

Perhaps the follow-up to this conference – some sort of task force is planned – will determine whether or not the next great idea will emanate from the people who came to Jerusalem this week.

They did not even have the moxie to form a real committee to do nothing, just "some sort of task force."
We can see how this will work. "Ladies and gentlemen of the some sort of task force. We have called you to some sort of meeting to make some sort of decision."
By the time this task force makes some sort of decision, there may only be a dozen Jews left outside Israel.
