"that crisis is a result of inadequate Jewish education" Yes! Yes! A thousand times yes! The Jews I know who have wandered away from Judaism either received no Jewish education, or received one so poor as to make them desire to distance themselves from it. Intermarriage is the symptom, rather than the foundational problem in those cases. People who are aware of and energized by the beauty in Judaism are not likely to let it slip away, no matter who they date or marry. Thank you for this thoughtful post!
