Identity, Invisible Religion, and Intermarriage

By Everett Gendler

Response, Winter 1970

The author responds to the ongoing intermarriage "crisis" in the Jewish community, and muses as to whether analogies with past scenarios have clouded modern judgment. As the sense of identity in the Jewish world evolves, so must the communities identification of potential problems, or lack thereof, in intermarriage. Jews must soberly assess the needs and reasons behind the wave of intermarriage.
