Kosher and Christmas Tree: On Marriages Between Jews and Non-Jews in Sweden, Finland, and Norway

By Lars Dencik

Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, December 18, 2003

Through a survey of affiliated Jews in Scandinavia, the author provides demographic information about attitudes towards intermarriage, rates of intermarriage and marriage to converts, and the ritual religious practices of intermarried families compared to in-married families. Jewish community size seems to be the strongest factor in predicting the acceptance and practice of intermarriage.
