In Contemporary Jewry 6/1, 47-75. This paper attempts to codify and interpret social science research dealing with marriages between Jews and non-Jews. It presents an accounting of the trends in Jewish intermarriage and a general diagrammatic balance-sheet of the factors in intermarriage. It then turns to the elements in this balance-sheet to produce a particular accounting for what has occurred, and it concludes with a "profit and loss" statement.
