Certainly, the statistics show that intermarried Jews are overwhelmingly less likely to be involved in Jewish activities: 85% of Jewish couples have or attend a Pesach seder, while only 41% of intermarried Jews do; 66% of Jewish couples fast on Yom Kippur while only 26% of intermarried Jews do; 59% of Jewish couples belong to a synagogue while only 15% of intermarried Jews do.

These statistics and more are sufficiently alarming to be a matter of great concern to the Jewish community.

For example, worshipping G-d in the form of a man would constitute idolatry for a Jew; however, according to some sources, the Christian worship of Jesus does not constitute idolatry for non-Jews. The word "goy" means "nation," and refers to the fact that goyim are members of other nations, that is, nations other than the Children of Israel.

While non-Jews are only obligated to obey the seven commandments given to Noah, Jews are responsible for fulfilling the 613 mitzvot in the Torah, thus G-d will punish Jews for doing things that would not be a sin for non-Jews.

The Torah states that the children of such marriages would be lost to Judaism (Deut.

7:3-4), and experience has shown the truth of this passage all too well.

I once received a message from a man who told me that many Jews do not like gentiles.

He knew this because his (Jewish) girlfriend's friends and parents disapproved of him.

Clearly, these are not the ideas of a people who think they are better than other nations.
