  • Reaching Out to the Fringe: Insiders, Outsiders, and the Morality of
           Social Science
    • Abstract: <p>By Jennifer A. Thompson</p> Since at least the 1920s, Jewish community leaders have used social science to help persuade lay people to adopt practices and attitudes that leaders have regarded as necessary for what they now call Jewish continuity. Rabbis in the 1920s used sociology to support their claims about the responsibilities of Jews to marry other Jews and raise Jewish children.1 Jewish community leaders, anxious about the future of Judaism, encouraged Jewish couples to procreate, and by the mid-twentieth century also advised couples to involve their children in institutional programs such as Jewish summer camps that could shape them into good Jews, a project that leaders were unwilling to leave up to Jewish families themselves.2 By ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Facts about Intermarriage
    • Abstract: <p>By Ira M. Sheskin, Harriet Hartman</p> Intermarriage has developed into one of the most important issues for the Jewish community and has clearly reached significant percentages nationally and in most American Jewish communities. It has been linked, among other indicators of Jewishness, to lower levels of synagogue participation and affiliation, less participation in Jewish organizations, less performance of Jewish ritual, lower levels of philanthropy in Jewish causes, lower levels of Jewish education, and lower attachment to and fewer visits to Israel.1 Of further concern for the American Jewish community is that a much lower percentage of Jews with a non-Jewish spouse say they are raising their children as Jews, whether by religion or by any other ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • “Funny—You Don’t Look Jewish!” Racial, Ethnic,
           and Religious Identities of Children of Asian American and Jewish American
    • Abstract: <p>By Helen Kim, Noah Leavitt, Rachel Williams</p> Who is a Jew? What does it mean to be Jewish? Often connected to these questions is the subject of intermarriage among Jewish Americans, a demographic reality that has long been understood as problematic and threatening to the Jewish people because of the supposed dilution, and possible extinction, of Jewish identity and community that will necessarily follow when a Jew marries a non-Jew. Often, the most pressing concern regarding intermarriage is its impact on the Jewish identity of the children and grandchildren of these relationships. Will the offspring of intermarriage identify as Jewish? If so, what does Jewish identity mean for these individuals? Furthermore, what impact does Jewish identification or ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • A More Perfect Union: Modern American Christian-Jewish Marriages
    • Abstract: <p>By Janice McDavit</p> Although interfaith marriages in the United States have been burgeoning, only a small fraction of psychological literature examines this topic.1 Smaller still is the number of studies focusing on Christian-Jewish interfaith marriages, although there are more than 500,000 of these couples in the United States, growing by about 40,000 each year.2The research discussed in this article elucidates this gap by examining the state of American Christian-Jewish interfaith marriages today. This study found that, contrary to previous psychological findings as well as some conventional wisdom, people in Christian-Jewish interfaith marriages are just as satisfied with their marriages as are people in same-faith unions. This ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • What are THEY doing on the Bimah?: How Intermarriage Changes Jewish
    • Abstract: <p>By Patricia Keer Munro</p> It is a typical moment during Deborah Berkowitz’s bat mitzvah service at Sukkot Shalom, a Reform congregation of 300 families located in the San Francisco Bay Area: passing the Torah. Rabbi Doron calls up Deborah’s parents, Jake and Christine, along with Jake’s grandparents. He hands the Torah to Jake’s parents; they pass it to Jake; he gives it to Christine to place in Deborah’s arms. After Deborah has carried the Torah through the attendees, family and friends recite the first three sets of blessing before and after reading Torah while Deborah chants from the scroll. Then Rabbi Doron calls Jacob and Christine forward, saying, “We call Yaacov ben Herzl v’Leah, accompanied by Christine Berkowitz, for the fourth ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • An Assimilating Majority? Israeli Marriage Law and Identity in the
           Jewish State
    • Abstract: <p>By Elise K. Burton</p> On August 17, 2014, during a tense cease-fire amidst the Israeli Defense Force’s Operation Protective Edge against Hamas in Gaza, Mahmoud Mansour and Morel Malka celebrated their wedding in Rishon Letzion, a city near Tel Aviv. A media circus precipitated days before the wedding, with the nuptials holding the attention of local and international news outlets for two weeks even as violence in Gaza continued to ebb and flow. Initially, coverage of the wedding focused on the basic facts: although both Israeli citizens, the groom was Muslim while the bride was born Jewish; therefore, the match roused the ire of figures ranging from the bride’s father to the leaders of Lehava, a right-wing Jewish nationalist ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Conflict of Authenticities in Intermarriage and Conversion
    • Abstract: <p>By Stuart Z. Charmé</p> Throughout the last century, communal and rabbinical leaders from all Jewish denominations and organizations have discussed and debated the “problem” of intermarriage. While intermarriage can, and should be, analyzed as an issue or phenomenon in its own right, it is also important to understand the ways in which it serves as a lightning rod or proxy for other major tensions in modern Jewish life. These include the conflicts between Orthodox and more liberal forms of Jewish observance and belief, relations between Jews and non-Jews, and questions about ethnicity and acculturation. Underlying all of these issues is a more fundamental dispute: the conflict between competing models of authenticity.This essay analyzes ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Ambivalent Attitudes toward Intermarriage in the Forverts,
    • Abstract: <p>By Jessica Kirzane</p> On May 2, 1905, the front-page above-the-fold bolded headline of Forverts, the Yiddish daily newspaper, announced: “He Converted to Judaism for a Jewish Woman.”1 Located next to news about labor negotiations, an item of key interest to the working-class readers of this socialist newspaper, the prominence of the article highlights the rarity of conversion and intermarriage at this historical moment and suggests that it was an event of significance to the immigrant Jewish community.2 The article’s summary, located under the headline, explains, “the bris of a 24-year-old Christian was held on Sunday. The wedding will be on Lag B’Omer.” Although the article states that the groom, Franz Polzausky, as a result of ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • “It Is Not the Number of Adherents”: Jewish Authenticity and
           Intermarriage Anxiety in Nineteenth-Century France
    • Abstract: <p>By Phoebe Maltz Bovy</p> The willingness of a particular Jewish population—or a particular Jew—to marry out is often used as a measure of Jewish authenticity. This can seem an eternal fact of Jewish life, so it is important to remember that until the French Revolution, Jewish intermarriage as spoken about today—the stuff of romantic comedy plotlines and earnest articles in Jewish communal newspapers1—did not exist. The era of Jewish emancipation began in 1791, when the Jews of France—40,000, or a fraction of one percent of the total population—became, according to the law, French citizens of the Jewish faith.2 France’s Jews and those seeking to shape their fate had no precedent for what religion-only Judaism would involve. What would ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: <p>By Keren McGinity</p> Intermarriage between Jews and people of other backgrounds has long been construed by scholars, religious and communal leaders in negative terms such as “problem,” “dilemma,” “threat,” “disease,” and “sin.” The main concern with regard to intermarriage and Jewish continuity, aside from the Biblical prohibition, is loss of identification with the Jewish people, religion, culture, and connection to the State of Israel. Recent scholarship, however, suggests that marriage outside of the Jewish fold does not automatically portend disaffection from Jewish identity or community. Indeed intermarriage has begun to be understood as an opportunity to draw both the Jew and their non-Jewish partner closer, inspiring them to ... <a href="">Read More</a>
