Double or Nothing: Jewish Families and Mixed Marriage

(Brandeis in American Jewish History, Culture and Life & Brandeis on Jewish Women)}}Fishman, drawing on 254 interviews with mixed-married couples; group discussions with teenage children; materials produced by communal, secular, and religious organizations; and conferences, books, and films created by and for interfaith audiences, examines the day-to-day realities of family life in mixed-married households. Parts one and two explore such questions as how do one Jewish and one Christian parent decide on the religious profile of the family they are creating? What do the choices mean to them? Does a decision in favor of one or the other create tension in the household? Part three places Jewish mixed marriage into cultural contexts and documents the distinctive concerns and activities. Economic, cultural, and socioreligious outcomes of mixed marriages are explored. The book concludes by discussing the implications of this potential demographic crisis and the future of American Jewish life. It is one of the best studies to date on this controversial subject.
