The Impact of Jewish Outreach on the Intermarried and the Unaffiliated

By Egon Mayer, Ron Miller, Nastaran Afari

Big Tent Judaism / Jewish Outreach Institute (JOI), October 2001

This report summarizes the results of a mail survey completed by 735 participants in eleven outreach programs which have been funded since 1998 in order to increase the involvement of interfaith families (and unaffiliated Jews) in Jewish life. The survey looks at whether the program was able to attract and engage interfaith people and whether it increased Jewish life participation and involvement of the participants among other goals. The survey finds that outreach program participation appears to have increased synagogue/temple religious service attendance, and Shabbat dinner participation significantly. In addition, interfaith respondents generally increased their level of involvement in Jewish life compared to when they initially had contact with the outreach program.
