Children of Intermarriage: How "Jewish?"

By Bruce A. Phillips

Oxford University Press, 1998

In Studies in Contemporary Jewry 14, 81-127. This article profiles adults who are the offspring of intermarriages and assesses what impact intermarriage has already had on the Jewish community. The article sheds light on the sort of Jewish environment in which they might be growing up. The last section of the article identifies those factors that increase the likelihood that a child in an intermarried home will be raised as Jewish. The analysis is based on the 1990 NJPS, the 1993 Survey on Mixed Marriage and the 1995 Survey of Non-Jewish Spouses.
