Intermarriage Among Jews in Canada: A Demographic Perspective

By Gustave Goldman

Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, December 2003

This paper addresses the following two questions: Is the rate of intermarriage among Jews in Canada changing over time? What is the impact of intermarriage, with respect to the religious identities of children of exogamous unions? Particular focus is placed on defining the study population since it varies somewhat from the classification used by a number of studies of the Jewish community in Canada. Although the work is primarily descriptive, an attempt is made to conduct relatively simple multivariate analyses. This paper concludes with a summary of the findings, a discussion of the limitations of the analysis and some directions for future research on this topic.
