Has the interest in Davening reached such a low that only by offering sushi and booze will the Shuls get the crowds in? And will feeding and shikkering young people really help turn them into better [and Shul-going] Jews?
I have no idea. Maybe rabbis Gutnick and Feldman can inform us of the successes or otherwise of these tactics.
And the question that will be asked is, how will these gimmicks affect the traditional, loyal and regular Shul-goers? It would be no surprise if many of them would find this almost sacrilegious.
