    Not very impressive when you consider that the purpose of creating Birthright was in order to try to battle assimilation w/o having to altering one's religious affiliation. This is especially true when we consider that the number of participants that desire to raise their children up Jewish has dropped drastically. What success is there in preserving the continuity of Jews and Judaism if we don't pass these values over to our children? All we are doing is extending the expiration date of an already dying people/race/religion! If we remain Jews that don't strive to instill Jewish values in our kids, perhaps half of our kids will remain Jews married to Jews, but what will become of the third or fourth generation? There will be nothing left. Is this called success?! "Leonard Saxe, who directs the center and headed up the studies, says the drop can be explained by the exclusion of the Orthodox from the updated study." - All that states is that the Orthodox remain true (or at least truer) to their values and successfully pass those values over to their kids. Based on all the above, can we really call Birthright a "Success"?! I THINK NOT! :(
