Most of my family intermarried. They all celebrate Christmas and do nothing Jewish. They are lost to Judaism. It's difficult enough for two Jewish parents to raise a Jewish child in the diaspora. When one is gentile and the other has a weak commitment to Judaism, it's almost impossible. There is another phenomenon here, however: A growing number of young Jews who are returning to Judaism (chozer b'tshuva) - so many that our local Jewish university has a new course for their secular parents.
