Intermarriage Anxiety

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The debate about intermarriage is one of the Jewish community's most polarizing conversations. Whether the issue is policy, terminology, or predictions about the future, the intermarriage debate surfaces - and often represses - deep and often conflicting anxieties about both the Jewish future and the Jewish past. We will try to map out the sources and meaning of the different anxieties that underlie this debate, and to consider how various "solutions" resolve - or ignore - these concerns.
