"The candor of these stories make this an important resource for discussing intermarriage and conversion issues... this book makes us consider exactly what we mean when we talk about creating welcoming communities for interfaith families." -- The Reconstructionist

"Useful for intermarried couples and their families." --Lilith
As the number of Jewish-Christian marriages in America continue to rise, couples find themselves searching for ways to reconcile love and religion. Even when each partner has no particular religious life, they are confronted with related conflicts.

Should children be raised in one faith and not the other?Who decides which holidays to celebrate and how?How can couples deal with extended family members who may not understand or accept their interfaith marriage?
Readers will find and array of reactions and approaches as the couples profiled in this book describe how they tacked these topics. Each personal narrative offers fresh insight into interfaith families by giving examples of the successes and failures, struggles and triumphs of everyday situations and major life decisions.
