Qualitative sources are utilized to provide an in-depth look at what rabbis say and how they feel about the issue of intermarriage, utilizing their own words. The data for this analysis comes from interviews with over 30 rabbis in Northern California between 1992-1994; about 70 sermons delivered by rabbis at their congregations or in other settings; articles, monographies or essays written by rabbis and from two surveys administered to Northern California rabbis in 1992 and 1995.
