Intermarriage: A Campus Perspective

By Richard M. Joel

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1991

Most Jewish students are not married during their college years, but this is a time in their lives of dating, creating friendship circles and exploring ideas. Therefore, dealing with students who are intermarried or are children of an intermarriage is important, but concentrating the very limited resources on issues of identity and Jewish connectedness will be a greater help in preventing future intermarriages. The challenge lies in bringing Jews together, forging links between them and a positive and affirmative Jewishness, and fostering Jewish communities.
