Intermarriage what should we do about it?
Intermarriage has reached record levels in the U.S. and in other parts of the world as well. The intermarriage rate in the U.S. is currently at 58% for all Jews and about 70% for the non-Orthodox see the link below for the Pew Study:

What is even more alarming is that only about 20% of the children of intermarriages in the U.S. are being raised as Jews see the child rearing chart for the Pew Study below:

This is also happening in other parts of the world as well. For instance in the UK while happening to a much lesser degree there is an issue occurring:

Unless something is done to deal with the crisis it looks like we are going to lose a large portion of our population in the future.

We have a lot of very intelligent people in the Jewish Community let’s put our heads together and brainstorm. Perhaps we can come up with some good ideas on how to at least stem the tide of intermarriage and its associated assimilation. Ideas please. What do you think we should do?

Permitted Marriages - Parshat Acharei - Mitzvahs & Traditions (
I am the product of an inter-marriage. I'm not a fan of them at all. I really wish I was fully ethnically Jewish and raised as a Jew, but since my genetic pull is so strong I still study Judaism and am converting to make my standing in the community official. There is a lot to be said for letting kids find their way, but I think if some of us halfies shared our stories, it might help people understand the consequences of an inter-marriage. No parent WANTS to condemn their kids to a life of isolation and struggle both personally and in the family. I have a lot to say about the subject, but I'm going to save it for folks with specific questions.
