If the Jewish kids/young adults don't hear about the importance of aliyah, marrying Jewish and having Jewish kids from Birthright, where will they hear it?
"But Lifshitz’s “message,” alumni say he routinely pushes aliyah, pressures participants to date only Jews and
stresses that they should “make Jewish babies,” has drawn criticism over the years. And this week, citing new restrictions forced on him by Birthright officials, Lifshitz, 53, a secular, nationalist former Israeli army officer whose office is based in Kfar Saba, cut his ties with the popular trips, formally withdrawing from the winter ‘09-’10 trip season."
Why mute the message?
