Dear Friends: I question the statistics of this report. An earlier report, released by Birthright in March, showed that only a tiny percentage of trip participants later become involved with the Jewish communal institutions in the United States. In other words, the trips are failing in their purpose. And yet now we have a second report in which the disinterested trip participants of the first report are suddenly transformed into zealous pro-Israel Jews who are avoiding intermarriage, if I may over-generalize a bit. And as the leader of the Half-Jewish Network, an organization for adult children of intermarriage, I was puzzled to see the report claim that the trips reduce intermarriage among adult children of intermarriage -- and yet there appeared to be only 17 adult children of intermarriage in the study -- an incredibly tiny group compared to the thousands of Jews with two Jewish parents who went on these trips -- How could a sample of 17 prove that theory?
