That is, while Orthodox Jews constitute just one-tenth of the adult Jewish population, they constitute a majority of the recently inmarrying Jews. In sum, low Jewish birthrates combined with high rates of intermarriage are producing fewer non-Orthodox Jews and among them, significantly fewer Jews with moderate-to-advanced education and cultural skills to allow for knowledgeable participation and leadership in Jewish life.
