PJ VOICE - Dec 28 - According to the latest surveys 47% of American Jews who married between 1996 and 2001 did so outside of their faith. While intermarriage affects only 6% of the Orthodox community, it reaches 32% of Conservative, 46% of Reform, and 49% of secular Jewish households. The number of intermarriages continues to grow (in 1970 only 13% of American Jews intermarried), and only 13% of the grandchildren of intermarried couples continue to identify themselves as Jews. Two new Jewish dating sites have launched:
- The JMom, geared toward Jewish parents and their single sons and daughters, the site offers a unique, but old-fashioned, concept: "Let Mom decide."
- My Jewish Matches: 100% free, members are certified to be Jewish, single with no criminal record.
