Summary "Contrary to the commonly-held view that intermarriage is a crisis for Judaism and the Jewish community, The A-Z of Intermarriage shows that intermarriage can be a force for good in the lives of families and in the Jewish community. Part story, part strategy, all heart, this book is for people who are intermarried, with family who are intermarried, or people who want to consider the dynamics of tradition and change in contemporary religious life. The A-Z of Intermarriage is a compendium of story and strategy; a coming together of religious source material, cultural context, personal narrative, and the learning done along the way of an intermarried rabbi, one who serves and supports mostly intermarried families. Most Jewish communities continue to cite intermarriage as a scourge for Jewish continuity and meaning. Contrary to these typical narratives that take a doom and gloom approach, this book argues that intermarriage is a positive result of an open society. Jews are accepted; even loved! This book further articulates how intermarriage can be a positive force in the lives of Jews and for Jewish communities. The goal of this book is to help others create meaningful, engaged, wonderful relationships and lives. Using story, humour, text, philosophy and real-world experience, this book presents a picture of intermarriage that is positive, affirming, and dynamic."-- Provided by publisher
