For example, the survey shows that the offspring of intermarriages — Jewish adults who have only one Jewish parent — are much more likely than the offspring of two Jewish parents to describe themselves, religiously, as atheist, agnostic or nothing in particular.

In this sense, intermarriage may be transmitting Jewish identity to a growing of Americans. Surveys are snapshots in time. We do not know, for example, whether the large cohort of young adult children of intermarriage who are Jewish today will remain Jewish as they age, marry and in some cases, intermarrystart families and move through the life cycle.

For example, among U.
