Communal Responses to Intermarriage

By Mark L. Winer

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1991

The phenomenon of intermarriage represents the single most important challenge facing American Jewry, yet people are reluctant to face its dangers. Intermarriage is more likely to happen following divorce. Children who grow up with a non-Jewish parent are much more inclined to lose their Jewish identity. The Jewish community therefore must internalize the ideology of endogamy. The author spreads his ideas and methods to face this challenge.
