In their recent column, advice columnists “The God Squad” were asked a question by the Jewish parents of a woman who was marrying a religious Catholic man. The God Squad makes a great recommendation–make a definite choice in how you’ll raise the children–but they base this recommendation on some very gloomy-sounding statistics about the future of children raised in Jewish/Christian intermarriages. According to The God Squad:
The best national statistic we’re aware of is that 33 percent of children raised by interfaith couples with one Jewish partner are raised Jewish (which is more like 3 in 10 than 2 in 10). As for how the other 7 of 10 children are raised, there’s no clear national statistic. We emailed The God Squad to find out their source.
