Accepting
Intermarriage

The American Jewish
community's attitude
toward mixed marriages has
changed considerably, ac-
cording to two new studies.
Where once there was ad-
monition, there now exists
acceptance. According to one
study:

5 percent
Would not
condone a "thirtysomething"
Jewish man or woman marry-
ing a non-Jew under any
circumstances.



21 percent
Would ac-
cept the mixed marriage if
the gentile partner agrees to
convert to Judaism.



74 percent — Would ac-
cept the mixed marriage
without any commitment to
convert. However, more
than half of this group would
insist that any children be
raised as Jews.

B'rith Women, which spon-
sored one of the studies and
which already accepts non-
Jewish members, might
"within a decade or two"
find itself with a majority of
non-Jewish members.
In response, Harriet Hor-
witz, president of B'nai
B'rith Women, acknowl-
edged that a "substantial
number" of the organiza-
tion's 100,000 members in
North America are already
non-Jewish. But that
presents no problem since
B'nai B'rith Women pro-
-- gramming is not overtly re-
-- ligious, she said.
"First of all, I'm not sure
we'll ever have a non-Jewish
majority," she said in an
interview. "But if it did
happen, I expect there would
be some subtle changes in
the organization." ❑
