The number of American Jews fell by 5 percent since 1990 and the intermarriage rate rose slightly to 47 percent, a new study says. The National Jewish Population Survey 2000-01, released after a year of delays arising from technical problems, said the intermarriage rate climbed from 43 percent, and that only 33 percent of intermarried households raise their children as Jews, compared to 96 percent of in-married couples.
