Muffti saw the following on Haaretz’s website. Apparently, children of interfaith marriages seem to largely identify with Judaism. The results seem sort of ambiguous to Muffti, though he’s not sure what he expected to see. Here’s an excerpt:
Although only 30 percent of the respondents considered themselves “Jewish” by religion, almost 70 percent affirmed that “being Jewish” is either “somewhat” or “very” important to them, and 78 percent expressed a desire to “transmit a Jewish ethnic identity to their children.” More than half said they had attended a Jewish cultural event, such as a film festival, art show or book fair, in the past two years.
Sad to say, on the Jewish cultural event front, these people are outdoing Muffti.
