Will your grandchildren identify as Jews?

This incredibly powerful graphic is a bit misleading when considering matra-lineal lineage. For example, if you have 50 Jewish men and 50 Jewish women in a population and each one marries outside of Judaism with an even Steven 50% interfaith marriage rate and a birth rate of 2 children per mother, how many Jewish children will they produce in the first generation? Second? Third? It is a trick question.

Assuming the thousand(s) year old definition of a Jew as being born from a Jewish mother or converting to Judaism, the answer to the above question is that there would be the same number of Jews in three generations. The 25 Jewish men that married gentiles would be replaced by the two children of the 25 women who married gentiles. The implications of this are frightening when we consider American Jewry. This would translate to millions of American Jews today who no longer identify as Jewish.

Accordingly, the chart below really represents those who identify as Jewish. This calculation predicted the famous Pew Study decades ago and according to many, is a proof that Orthodox is the only movement that successfully prevents interfaith marriage.

Channuka: Why the Candle?

Why the candle?

Chanuka power of a canldeOn Channuka, we light the candles for eight nights to publicize the miracle that one day of pure oil lasted eight days. I don’t get it! There was a huge military victory worthy of parades, fireworks, and the like. Why did the sages of Israel decide to place nearly all our focus of Jewish practice on lighting a candle. In fact, the sages thought it was so important to publicize this miracle that Jewish law necessitates that a person must sell his clothing to acquire enough oil for one candle. We see this level of importance also by publicizing the miracle of leaving Egypt with our four cups of wine on Passover. So, why all this focus on the candle?

The Maccabees were Kohanim (Temple Officials) who served in the Temple in Jerusalem thousands of years ago. They were also the one’s who lead the charge against the invading Greeks who threatened freedom of religious practice in the land of Israel through committing horrendous acts and specifically outlawing the practice of Torah and mitzvot. These Kohanim who lead the charge on the battle field were the most likely to attribute the victory to their own might, brilliance and strategies. That is why it was the Temple Officials were the one who discovered the oil. The miracle of the oil was a door to door delivery for those who might need it most as a reminder that the G-d above time and space, the G-d of Israel, is calling the shots and is the one who once again enabled our victory enabling us to practice our religion freely. The name Chanu means “they rested” and the letters Chaf Hey means “25.” Accordingly, Channu-ka is a celebration that they rested from war and religious oppression on the 25th of Kislev. May we all experience a peaceful Channukah and truly appreciate the ability to light our candles free from oppression.

(Based on Sifsei Chaim)
