Abstract:

This Powerpoint presentation addresses

* current discourse about intermarriage, including the move from a disease model focused on “prevention” and “treatment” to a focus on how to engage families in meaningful Jewish life;

* the misinterpretation of data on Jewish engagement relating to intermarriage, especially how the differences between intermarried/inmarried households mask the critical role of meaningful Jewish education and experiences;

* Possibilities and policy recommendations to change patterns of engagement with Jewish life and opportunities to alter trajectories of the next generation.
