compel the attention of the
American Jewish community.
Dr. Rosenthal's report has
created great interest, shatter-
ing the popular belief that in-
termarriage among the Jews in
the United States was negligible.
It shows that more than 13 per
cent of the Jews in a large
American city intermarry, and
that the figure is bound to rise.
According to the study, inter-
marriage is greater for every!
generation born in the United
States and rises even more
sharply among the college ed-
ucated. Since most of the chil-
dren from such marriages are
lost to the Jewish group, inter-
marriage is becoming the major
problem of American Jewry to-
day, Dr. Rosenthal stated.
Taken as a whole. Dr. Ro-
senthal says, the new statistics
add up to a glum prospect for
hopes for a growing Jewish
community in the United
States — particularly since
other studies he has done
show that Jews also tend to
have fewer children than most
This is Dr. Rosenthal's first
address on the subject since the
publication of his study.
Avern L. Cohn, president of
the local chapter of the Amer-
ican Jewish Committee, will be
chairman of the evening. Mrs.
Jerome B. Grossman, president
of the Detroit Section, National
Council of Jewish Women, will
introduce the speaker.
Other committee members
who are planning this event of
great interest to Detroit Jewry
include Max Pincus, American
Jewish Committee; Irwin Shaw
and Harold Berry, Jewish Cen-
ter; George M. Zeltzer and Mrs.
Leonard Weiner, National Foun-
dation for Jewish Culture; and
Mrs. Marshall Miller, Council of
Jewish Women.
