By Paul Golin

Big Tent Judaism / Jewish Outreach Institute (JOI), Forward Association, November 4, 2009

Although many believe that Birthright Israel is a means of preventing Jewish youth from engaging in interfaith relationships, the author explains why Birthright Israel is not a remedy to intermarriage.

Check out Adam Gamoran's Impact or Bias: Measuring Cause and Effect in Jewish Education. There he offers a critique of the Birthright Israel Study to which Golin makes reference.
