Intermarriage and the Jewish Future: A National Study in Summary

By Egon Mayer, Carl Sheingold

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1979

The study sought to examine the impact of intermarriage on the couples involved and on their families, as well as on their ties to the Jewish community. More particularly the study tries to find whether intermarriage leads to a diminishing identification with Judaism and the Jewish community on the part of the Jewish spouse; whether intermarriage promotes conflict between marriage partners; whether intermarriage causes alienation between the Jewish spouse and his/her parents, siblings, extended family; how non-Jewish spouses feel about the introduction of Jewish content into their family lives and about efforts to provide Jewish observance at home.
