The Israeli Birthrate

At a recent visit to the Spanish & Portuguese Synagogue, former Israeli President Yitzhak Navon explained the demographic problems facing Israel. The average birthrate per couple was only 1.6 children, not even enough to replace the previous generation.

Luckily, religious Jews are trying to make up the deficiency by having large families. Likewise, some Sephardic families are also having a large number of children such as Ezra Shohet and his wife Caroline (née Khazma) shown below with their children and grandchildren.

May more Jewish couples follow their example.
