Poll Shows Young Israelis Oppose Intermarriage


A recent poll of Israelis 18-22 years of age showed that 81% of them were opposed to intermarriage. The poll of a representative group of 500 Israelis showed clearly that it is young people chiefly who are opposed to intermarriage, said anti-missionary group Yad L'achim.

The organization said that it was important to allow speakers into public schools to discourage intermarriage, in order to help save the 19% who do not oppose the idea. “Let speakers present their ideas in order to minimize intermarriage as much as possible,” the organization said.
