The Jewish Family Today: An Overview
Samuel C. Heilman
Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture,
The author tries to portray several aspects of the contemporary Jewish family (as of 1984). He describe some recent phenomena and their consequences: late marriages, increased intermarriage, a rising number of divorces, reduced fertility, changing parenting patterns, increased life expectancy and the aging Jewish family. There is room for optimism thanks to flourishing Jewish education and cultural outreach programs.
