Right number, wrong strength :(

Sometimes, even having a minyan is not enough. Yesterday, we had a minyan, but we still had to read the Torah from a chumash because there was no one present who was strong enough to take a Torah scroll out of the Aron Kodesh/Ark.  😥  That's going to happen when the majority of folks attending a service are over seventy.

You need a smaller scroll!

Lanie Bergman , actually, what we need is a lower Aron Kodesh--the idiot architect who built our shul building put the Ark so high off the floor that a person has to be at least five and a half feet tall to be able to remove a Torah scroll from it. 😡

Seems like the non-Orthodox branches of Judaism in general have the problem of an aging membership, no? Reform Judaism at least tried to solve this problem by redefining "Who is a Jew?" more broadly and also by attracting liberal-minded Jews from those Jewish movements further to the right, with some success. But what is Conservative Judaism to do in regards to this?
