Mixed Marriage in Western Jewry: Historical Background to the Jewish Response

By Moshe Davis

World Jewish Congress (WJC), December 1968

The contemporary phenomenon of mixed marriage has become a crucial index of Jewish collective assimilation and self-identification. The author is preparing an exploratory study of Jewish corporate reaction to the contemporary challenge of mixed marriage in the Western world. In the section of the study presented here, he attempts to interpret the post-Emancipation communal reaction to intermarriage and mixed marriage in historical comparative context.
