Forum I: Intermarriage, Outreach and a New Agenda for Jewish Survival: a Perspective on the Contemporary American Jewish Community

By Egon Mayer

Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1990

Intermarriage is an unanticipated consequence of a survival strategy in which Jews gained the benefits of tolerance and civil rights in exchange for social invisibility. The challenge to the American Jewish community posed by intermarriage can only be met if it articulates a new vision of Jewish survival based on a rejection of Jewish social invisibility. Effective Jewish outreach must take Judaism as a religion and Jewishness as a culture and civilization public, staking its claim to a fair share of the public's attention.
