Interfaith / Mixed Marriages PLEASE read annotations. The prohibition against intermarriage does not equate to being bigoted or narrow minded. It is about being realistic and considerate. It is unrealistic to expect one's non-Jewish spouse to live in accord with all the all encompassing daily religious practices that becoming Jewish involves. That's why mixed marriages usually equate to religion taking a backseat ride in the rides of both spouses. The children of such marriages usually end up being secular, rather than being seriously committed to the faith of either of the parents.
Report: The New Faces of the Japanese Canadian Community The Powell Street Festival in Vancouver celebrated its 34th anniversary in 2010. The faces of the Japanese Canadian community that gather at this event and others have changed dramatically in the last few decades. Natalie Higashi reports on the rate of intermarriage in the Japanese Canadian community, which stands at 95% and is the highest of all visible ethnic groups in North America, according to Statistics Canada.
A date with a jewish girl Traditional Judaism does not permit interfaith marriages. The Torah states that the children of such marriages would be lost to Judaism (Deut. 7:3-4), and experience has shown the truth of this passage all too well. The 2000 National Jewish Population Survey found that only a third of interfaith couples raise their children Jewish, despite increasing efforts in the Reform and Conservative communities to welcome interfaith couples. This may reflect the fact that Jews who intermarry are not deeply committed to their religion in the first place: if they were, why would they marry someone who did not share it? Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin provide an excellent discussion of the issues involved in intermarriage in their book The Nine Questions People Ask About Judaism (Simon & Schuster, 1981). They note that if the non-Jewish spouse truly shares the same values as the Jewish spouse, then the non-Jew is welcome to convert to Judaism, and if the non-Jew does not share the same values, then the couple should not be marrying in the first place. Source: Some Christians believe that : the Old Testament isn't required to be followed by Christians and "gentiles" (non-Jews), the New Testament is what Christians firmly believe in with a few exceptions from the Old testament such as the ten commandments are the law for Christians as well as Jews to abide by. although Jesus said in ((Matthew 5:17-18): Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am ...

Patterns of Intermarriage & Cross-generational In-marriage Among Native-born Asian Americans Visit for full video. This article examines patterns of post-1965 native-born Asian Americans intermarriages and cross-generational in-marriages using a combined sample of the 2001-2006 American Community Surveys from the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series. The ***ysis focuses on ethnic and gender differences in intermarriage and cross-generational in-marriage rates and patterns. About 55% of native-born Asian Americans are found to be intermarried while another 23% are married to 1.5-generation or first-generation co-ethnic immigrants. Thus only 22% of native-born Asian Americans are married to co-ethnic native-born Asian Americans. As expected, there are significant ethnic and gender differences in intermarriage and cross-generational in-marriage rates and patterns.

Quran is the Most Unholy Book as it has broken the Law of Yahu'weh (YHWH) Elohim The Torah of Moses strictly forbids intermarriage in order to preserve a holy nation of Israel. Deu 7:3 "Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son." Samaritans are the half-Jews who came from intermarriage of men from Babylon and other cities (2 Kings 17:24) with the women of Samaria. Both Arabs and Samaritans are excluded from prophethood as they were defiled by intermarriage. Ezra 10:2 And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, answered and said unto Ezra, "We have trespassed against our Elohim, and have taken strange wives of the people of the land: yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing." Ezra 10:3 "Now therefore let us make a covenant with our Elohim to put away all the wives, and such as are born of them, according to the counsel of my master, and of those that tremble at the commandment of our Elohim; and let it be done according to the law." Ezra 10:10 And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel. Ezra 10:11 Now therefore make confession unto YHWH Elohim of your fathers, and do his pleasure: and separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from the strange wives. Neh 13:27 "Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our Elohim in marrying strange wives?" God had spared not Solomon who married foreign ...

Intermarriage in American Jewish LIfe - Dr. David Rudolph Dr. David Rudolph on the topic of intermarriage in the American Jewish community.
Intermarriage America Before 1965, 10% of Jews who married, did so outside the faith. books.google.co.nz Middle East countries don't recognize civil marriages, and no religious authority will perform an interfaith wedding. Lebanon and Israel are different in that they recognize civil marriages as long as they're performed abroad, and the closest venue abroad is Cyprus. Who is ruling the country? In a way, its the religious parties, says Wakim, 39, a Lebanese groom. Not separating the church from government from the beginning... this is the biggest problem. in 2008, by a Cyprus government count, 523 couples from Lebanon and 1533 from Israel were married here. In Israel, the Orthodox rabbis who control marriage and divorce argue that their strict definition of Jewishness — it passes only through the mother — is vital to preserve the unity of a long-persecuted people, and to spare the offspring of mixed marriages from inheriting similar problems when their time comes to marry.
Dr. David Duke - Stop the Genocide of European Mankind In this new video by Dr. David Duke, he exposes the Genocidal policies of Nicolas Sarkozy. He graphically shows that while Sarkozy works to destroy the European people, at the same time he actively works for the Jewish Supremacist State of Israel. While he says in a recent speech that European Frenchmen must intermarry with Africans, he chooses to marry his own. And while he does nothing to stop the complete destruction of the French people, he supports Israel as a "Jewish State." While he tells French men and women to intermarry, he supports Jewish organizations that have programs to prevent Jews from intermarrying. While he wants the French to intermarry, he supports Israel that outlaws intermarriage between a Jew and a Gentile. This video exposes like no other the hypocrisy of Jewish supremacism!
Israeli ads warn against marrying non-Jews The Israeli government has launched a television and internet advertising campaign urging Israelis to inform on Jewish friends and relatives abroad who may be in danger of marrying non-Jews. Israel, whose Jewish population of 5.6 million accounts for 41 per cent of worldwide Jewry, has obstructed intermarriage between its Jewish and Arab citizens by refusing to recognise such marriages unless they are performed abroad. The advertising campaign is directed particularly at Jews in the United States and Canada, whose combined 5.7 million Jews constitute the worlds largest Jewish population. Most belong to the liberal Reform stream of Judaism that, unlike Orthodoxy, does not oppose intermarriage.

Intermarriage Rap Song - Why Jew Should Marry Jewish Is It Racist to Want a Jewish Spouse? via Question I was explaining to a non-Jewish work colleague that I only date Jewish men, because I would not marry a non-Jew. He accused me of being racist. I was caught on the spot and had nothing to say. How would you respond to this situation? Answer: If insisting that you will only date Jews makes you racist, does insisting that you will only date men make you ***ist? You are certainly discriminating, but is this discrimination bad? You are not talking about what type of person you want to work with, or who you would prefer to sit next to on a train. You are talking about who you want to marry. Are you expected not to discriminate about who you marry, the same way you are expected not to discriminate when reading a job application? There are plenty of wonderful women out there, but they can't father your children. And there are plenty of wonderful non-Jewish men out there, but they can't give you a Jewish family. You want a family so you seek a man; you want a Jewish family so you seek a Jewish man. There is nothing offensive about that. And there is no racial issue here. Jewishness is neither a race, nor a religion. It is a soul identity. The man you marry can be a European Jew or an Oriental Jew, a black Jew or a white Jew. He can be a Jew by birth or a Jew by choice. But if you want a Jewish family, he's got to be a he, and he's got to be a Hebrew. -Rabbi Aaron Moss TO CHAT ONE-ON-ONE LIVE ABOUT THIS TOPIC ...

Come Wander - Jewish Homegrown History "Come Wander" is three screen orchestration edited for the traveling exhibition "Jewish Homegrown History: Immigration, Identity and Intermarriage" In the installation, this narrative sequence will be projected on 3 large screens, each 6ft by 8ft. "Come Wander" tells the story of theater director Juliette Carrillo, the product of an intermarriage between a Jewish mother (Sheila Goldberg) and Mexican father (Eduardo Carrillo) who met in the Art Department at UCLA and fell in love. Fearing their children and grandchildren would not remain Jewish, the Goldbergs opposed the marriage. According to historian Jonathan Sarna, this "haunting fear" is what makes the story of Jews in America so dynamic, "a story of assimilation but also...revitalization". The story is told through voice-overs by the daughter and mother and through home movies that become Juliette's historical legacy.

Tehillim 121 - Psalm 121 - Karen Standing in the airport, ticket in her pack Spent some time in Israel, and now she's going back Thinking of the places she finally got to see How can she tell her friends back home Or tell her family? An aching deep inside her heart is warning her to stay Maybe she can live her life here, find a brand new way Suddenly a foreign voice is calling out her flight With trembling hands she boards the plane And flies into the night. May He guard her way Through the night and day She is His child, His very own From the moment of birth No matter where on earth May He lead her footsteps home... Music and Lyrics (c) 1983 by Ashira Morgenstern

SamBakZa's There she is!! Step 4 :: Paradise In this step, the protagonists deal with social revolt over intermarriage: Doki is hurt by an angry mob and is hospitalized. Fearing that intermarriage opponents would injure Doki further, Nabi abruptly ends the relationship, displaying an anti-intermarriage sign on his door. Doki considers asking him to come with her to "Paradise", implied to be a location that accepts intermarriage. She doesn't notice Il-ho spying on her. Il-ho confronts the detached Nabi to literally knock some sense into him, but his action sparks an attack by intermarriage supporters who assume he is viciously attacking Nabi. Il-ho turns to leave and finds intermarriage opponents in the way. Frustrated, he blindly punches through the crowd, only to hit his friend Yi-ho by mistake. This provokes a riot between intermarriage supporters and opponents. Doki tries to contact Nabi, who can't answer since he was arrested alongside Il-ho. Assuming that he doesn't want to have anything to do with her anymore, Doki loses all hope and decides to leave for "Paradise", after dropping her cellphone from the roof of her apartment building. Much darker in character than the previous episodes, this episode is primarily in black and white, with Nabi's trademark green scarf, doki's perma blush cheeks, her trademark pink bow, and the protest signs in colour. As the episode progresses, Nabi's scarf gradually fades in colour. When Nabi succumbs to prejudice and breaks off the relationship with Doki, his scarf has ...
