This study examines and supplies some of the relevant information about the complexity and fluidity of such phenomena as nuptiality, fertility, and mixed marriage, in the modern, largely secularized American Jewish community. Low fertility rates and assimilation result in a slightly negative balance of the internal population dynamics of U.S. Jewry, which is expected to become overtly negative in the foreseeable future.
