We are now fortunate to have Rabbi Weisser at our congregation in Flushing Queens, New York-visit him at the Free Synagogue of Flushing for a truly spiritual and yes humanistic experience.

I have to say, I am really happy to read this.

I am a non-Jewish woman engaged to a Jewish man whom I love dearly. One of my biggest fears has been that I will be an impediment to my fiancé being able to express his faith and engage with a community that he feels connected to. He has said many times that he wants to find a community where we both feel welcome, whether or not I convert.

One can find plenty of articles online that talk about the dangers of intermarriage and compare interfaith couples to the Holocaust or Hitler. There is very little more insulting and hurtful than that comparison, particularly for those of us who are committed to understanding our partners’ religion and including it in our shared lives.

Reading an article that defends intermarriage and calls for welcoming non-Jewish partners is a relief to read and really does give me hope.
