As the principal researchers who conducted the recently released Boston Jewish community study, we appreciate the comments by opinion writers Steven M. Cohen, Jack Ukeles and Ron Miller regarding our finding that the majority of children in intermarried homes are being raised as Jews (“Read Boston Study on Intermarriage With Caution,” December 8). We concur that there are likely other communities that have had similar success as Boston, but we take issue with the view that our question may have resulted in a bias.
