    Many Jewish kings married shiksas, and Esther married a Persian King. Why not in modern times? The "assimilation" is not just true for Jews in the diaspora, but also true for all religions. In the westernized world, your ethnicity is your heritage, but what you feel in your heart and soul and how you observe religious practices is up to you the individual. So Jews become Buddhists, Catholics become Baptists, and Scientologists become agnostic. BTW - regarding the statistic of the number of American Jews who won the Nobel prize? I don't know for sure, but I would bet a substantial amount of money that many on this board would consider them "lost" because they practice Reform or American-Orthodox, and/or they have intermarried, and/or have a non-jewish parent, and/or they are not practicing Judaism on a daily basis, or raising their children as observant Jews. Just sayin'.
