Intermarriage: The Crucial College Years

By Alfred Jospe, Morton Teicher

UJA-Federation of New York, 1965

Secular college education is correlated with higher intermarriage rate. The increased percentage of Jews who go to college may suggest a cause for the general increase of intermarriage. College's Intellectualism diverts the Jewish student from his home-Jewishness, and especially its religious aspects. Many Jewish intellectuals feel that Judaism is spiritually obsolescent and intellectually irrelevant. Therefore, it is important to integrate Jewish education and culture, such as offered by Hillel organization, within colleges country-wide, which might diminish intermarriage rate. A following discussion confronts several issues related to this proposed college Jewish education system.
