“For me, Judaism is the first thing in my life, even before being an Israeli. For me, Israel is a very important and wonderful tool to guarantee Jewish continuity. I think that only in Israel, total secular people like me can guarantee their Jewish survival, while in other places in the world — only assimilation awaits them.”
Beilin added that he wants his children to only marry Jews. “I don’t have to tell my kids ‘Don’t marry non-Jews’ because as a liberal, I can’t tell them such a thing. Nevertheless, I don’t want them to marry non-Jews, and the only way to guarantee it is that they are living here in Israel.”
Here is our advice for Yossi — embrace authentic, Torah-true Judaism! Then your kids will treasure their Jewish identity and want to marry Jews wherever they are in the world!
