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.

Jane Kaplan has produced a number of programs for public television and has independently created various films and videos. Her programs have focused on such topics as sexual harassment, parenting, the Holocaust, and mental health.
