High rate of Assimilation- WHY?







Rav Shlomo Zalman Aurbach, OB"M told me that the reason of the high rate of assimilation is because as of the kulos & heterim of de americaner Rabonim in "bihul-akum und Yayin-nesech" halachos- I asked perhaps the Heteirim are acceptable? Reb Shlomo Zalman, responded it can't be-As CHAZAL said........otherwise we wouldn't have the high rate of assimilation.

He said "if we eliminate a bishul akum in New York, it will eliminate an intermarriage in Pariz.

BTW- Many sefardi communities do not allow for any geirus (conversions).
