Jewish leaders younger than 40 aren’t as bent out of shape about intermarriage as their older colleagues.

That’s a not-very-surprising finding of “Generation of Change: How Leaders in their Twenties and Thirties are Reshaping American Jewish Life,” a new survey of young leaders of Jewish organizations commissioned by the Avi Chai Foundation.

Actually, this is hardly the only saddening but unsurprising statistic to emerge from the survey. While high percentages of these “young leaders” claim a strong sense of belonging to the Jewish people and being part of the Jewish community, fewer than 50% strongly agreed that they have a responsibility to take care of Jews in need around the world.
