Sunday Forum - Intermarriage and the Future of Judaism

  • MJCC 6651 SW Capitol Hwy Portland, Or (map)

Intermarriage is good, period. There’s only one Jewish denomination that can make such a claim with no strings attached. Explore how intercultural marriage — often referred to as “interfaith marriage” where one spouse is Jewish and one is not — isn’t the threat the organized Jewish community historically made it out to be. The question then is what comes next, when intermarriage is instead seen as an opportunity for meaning and growth. Join a conversation facilitated by Paul Golin, who has two decades of experience working on the issues around Jewish intermarriage as an advocate for inclusion and is himself one of the few intermarried executive directors of a Jewish communal organization.
