Title Intermarriage: The Impact and Lessons of Taglit‐Birthright Israel
Author: Saxe, Leonard; Phillips, Benjamin; Sasson, Theodore; Hecht, Shahar; Shain, Michelle; Wright, Graham; Kadushin, Charles
Abstract: The focus on Jewish continuity has shifted in the last two decades from concern with anti-semitism to anxiety over the threat of intermarriage and assimilation. This paper examines the impact of Taglit-Birthright Israel (Taglit) on intermarriage, conversion, and attitudes toward raising children as Jews. The study isolates Taglit's impact and compares Taglit's influence to other educational interventions and background characteristics. Taglit had a powerful effect on rates of inmarriage, as well as the motivation of parents to raise Jewish children.
