Interfaith Couples & Families

The 2005 Boston Community Survey found that roughly 50 percent of all new marriages involving a Jewish partner are interfaith marriages, and that 60 percent of those interfaith couples are choosing to raise Jewish families. Barry Shrage, president of Combined Jewish Philanthropies, says, "We believe strongly that our approach in Boston works—that creating an inclusive community of meaning and purpose attracts intermarried families and strengthens Jewish life for all our children and grandchildren."

We are lucky to live in a community that supports the inclusion of non-Jewish family members in Jewish life.
