Intermarriage and American Jews Today: New Findings and Policy Implications

By Sylvia Barack Fishman, Gary A. Tobin, Mordechai Rimor, Peter Medding

Maurice & Marilyn Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies (CMJS), October 1990

The authors argue that rising intermarriage rates raise concerns about community vitality which are far more significant than simple issues of numerical growth or decline. They analyze the incidence of mixed marriage and conversionary marriage by age group and by decade of marriage. They then focus on some Jewish communal and ritual behavior patterns in each type of household. Finally, they present a number of policy implications which are suggested by the data.
