Jewish and Something Else: A Study of Mixed-Married Families

By Sylvia Barack Fishman

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 2001

The study demonstrates that the dynamics of Jewish identity within mixed-marriage are particularly ominous for Jewish continuity. The rise of dual-faith homes, practicing a mixture of Judaism and Christianity, brings religious syncretism that undermines the integrity of both faiths. The nature of Jewish identification in such homes is being so radically redefined as to become unrecognizable, forfeiting a distinctive Jewish ethos--to say nothing of Jewish continuity.
