The Upside of Intermarriage

Interfaith families live the day-to-day coexistence that the rest of the Jewish community strives for.

I recently discovered the missing piece to the Jewish community’s dialogue on intermarriage. Beyond the hostile (and essentially fearful) attitude American Jews tend to espouse, lies in mixed marriages a special lesson in coexistence. I learned this on a recent trip to Jordan from a Muslim Palestinian of Jewish descent who has committed his life to combating anti-Semitism.
