Interfaith Relationships

Interfaith relationships are increasingly the norm in certain parts of the Jewish community: According to a 2020 Pew survey of Jewish Americans, 42% of married respondents had a non-Jewish spouse, and those numbers are on the rise. According to the same study, among those who got married since 2010, 61% were intermarried—and excluding Orthodox Jews, among whom intermarriage remains rare, 72% were intermarried. Intermarried couples face unique issues about how to observe holidays, join religious communities, deal with their respective families, and raise children.
