While I think this campaign will do little to address the underlying issue & may create more controversy than offer a solution,it draws attention to a serious issue facing the future of the Jews:will the high & raising intermarriage rate spell the end of much of the Jewish community in the disaspora?In the US about 50% of young Jews marrying today,marry outside the faith.In nearly all cases,the children of that marriage are lost to the faith & either raised with no religion or as Christians & in nearly all of these cases there is NO identity with the Jewish heritage.Certainly the high intermarriage rate indicates how comfortable & assimilated Jews are in the US which is good,but the underlying loss to a group which is so small to start cannot be easily measured.I have watched with saddness as the children of parents I know marry outside the faith & I know that in a single generation an entire family will cease being Jewish,something their ancestors clung to in the face of persecution.
