"To Live Outside the Law, You Must Be Honest"- Boundaries, Borderlands and the Ethics of Cultural Negotiation
By Rachel Adler
Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Spring 2004
The author argues that Judaism has always been influenced by the cultures and religions it encounters. The author presents a case study in an attempt to demonstrate how people who are intermarrying can enrich Judaism by modeling how to transgress or negotiate boundaries in a way that retains integrity. The author concludes by arguing that while such transgressions do threaten religious cultures, they also revivify, suffusing religious content with new perspectives, new urgencies and new visions.
