Interfaith Marriage Today
Friday, March 4, 7:30PM
Much to the surprise of many, the Pew Research Center’s 2013 survey of American Jews documented an increasing tendency among young adult children of intermarriage to identify as Jewish. Why are today’s young adult children of intermarriage more likely to be Jewish than in previous generations? How do their Jewish identities differ from their counterparts raised in households with two Jewish parents? What, in light of these changes, does the high rate of intermarriage portend for the future of the American Jewish community?
Jewish Identity in Interfaith Homes
Sunday, March 6, 9:30AM
What religious and cultural experiences during childhood most strongly influence the religious trajectories of children of intermarriage? In this lecture, Dr. Sasson will share his new research involving thousands of young adult children of intermarriage. Discussion will explore the possibilities and challenges of raising children Jewish in interfaith families. RSVP for this session here.
