Nobody likes to talk about it, but one issue that could ultimately prove to be a wedge in long-standing partnership between Birthright and the State of Israel is intermarriage.

According to Birthright statistics, about half of their participants are offspring of intermarried couples, and thanks to the organization’s inclusive policies, half of those participants from mixed marriages don’t have a Jewish mother.
